About the Trillium Recognition Program

The program is brought to you by The Park in the City Committee through the work of the Trillium Recognition Sub-Committee. The mandate of the program is to foster city-wide beautification efforts from all property owners through a recognition program that encourages residents to strive to enhance their curbside appeal while utilizing basic horticultural and environmental considerations. Residents are encouraged through co-operation to achieve a level of excellence in developing and maintaining their properties. Residents reaching a level of excellence are also empowered to educate others through a mentorship component, which further promotes beautification throughout the City of Niagara Falls.

How to Participate

All property owners, whether residential, commercial or even industrial are able to participate…and it’s free! Residents are able to nominate their own property or other properties they feel would like to be involved. Keep in mind though, permission should be granted from property owners. More information, including Nomination Forms, are available on the Trillium Nomination page.

Assessment of your Property

The Trillium Sub-Committee will be visiting properties on July 17th, 2014. The Committee will determine how well a property is maintained through a scoring matrix system (Principles of Design, Turf, Plants, Hardscaping Features, Unique Features and Environmental Issues). Properties will be assessed and given a score between 0 and 100. All assessed properties will be notified of their assessment outcome shortly after. Information about the different categories can be found on the Trillium Categories that an assessment can be classified.

Recognition Ceremony

Property owners who are recognized with a coloured Trillium rating (Gold, Silver, Bronze) will be invited to attend the Recognition Ceremony that will take place on Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel, located on Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls. At the Ceremony, property owners will receive an award for their efforts. Program sponsors will also take part in the festivities. Doors open at 6:30 pm with the Ceremony to start at 7:00 pm sharp.
