2015 Assessments completed

The Trillium Sub-Committee visited nominated properties on Thursday, July 16.  This consisted of a quick 1 minute curbside stop in front of each property to view the landscaping. Properties were assessed in terms of 6 categories: Principles of Design, Turf, Plants, Hardscapes, Unique Features and Environmental Issues.  Results have been mailed to each property owner.  We thank you in advance for your patience as this process did take some time to complete.  Scoring will not be given to participants over the phone.  For further clarification on the assessment, please call Recreation & Culture at 905-356-7521 ext.3330.

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.

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.  Please note, nominations closed on July 1 for the 2015 program.

Assessment of your Property

The Trillium sub-Committee travels throughout the City each summer to assess participating properties. 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 have participated will be invited to attend a Recognition Ceremony that annually takes place  late September.  All properties will receive two complimentary tickets included in their assessment mailout.  During the Ceremony, property owners that have been Trillium rated will receive an award for their efforts. Program sponsors will also take part in the festivities.
