Downtown Beautification Awards

Downtown Association’s Annual Beautification Awards was held on Tuesday, March 8th at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.  This annual event honored nearly two dozen Downtown businesses who have gone “above and beyond” by improving, enhancing or newly establishing their business’ image in the 2015 calendar year.  From tenant improvements to maintenance, awards were given in categories that illustrate the different ways people do their part to keep Downtown inviting and beautiful.

Congratulations to our 2016 Beautification Award Winners:
