The Curb Appeal Awards are presented each fall to tenants across CAN DO's four business and industrial parks who dedicate time and attention to beautifying their properties through landscaping and grounds maintenance.
Curb Appeal judges, Sherri Homanko, Pharm.D and James Dino, will be circulating the parks to evaluate facilities throughout July. In addition to being judged on first impressions, landscaping & appeal, and safety & cleanliness, industries will also be evaluated on creativity, a category that was introduced in 2022.
Once judging is complete, winners will be announced during an industry mixer event at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Humboldt Station, which is scheduled to happen later this fall. Three winners will be honored throughout Humboldt Industrial Park – for companies with under 100 employees, 100-200 employees, and 200+ employees, and two winners will be selected from Valmont Industrial Park – for companies with under 150 employees and over 150 employees.
One award winner will also be recognized from McAdoo Industrial Park, the CAN DO Corporate Center, and Humboldt Station. In addition to selecting an overall award winner from all parks, one company will also receive the newly coveted ‘Most Creative’ award. To continue encouraging friendly and spirited competition throughout the parks, companies are now eligible to win multiple years in a row – a change that was introduced during last year’s festivities.
“The Curb Appeal Awards allow our local industries to highlight their properties and business leaders to network at the annual mixer. It is one of my favorite events that CAN DO holds throughout the year and I can't wait to see the creative ideas the industries bring to life,” Homanko said.
