Each year the County of Newell offers a program called Rural Beautification. In this program residents that own more than a one-acre yard and maintain it in an aesthetically pleasing manner have the opportunity to be recognized.
Nominations for the Rural Beautification program can be made by calling into Agricultural Services Department at the County of Newell office at (403) 794-2311.
Nomination deadline for this program is noon on Monday, July 13th and judging the nominated yards is tentatively schedule for July 20th and July 21st.
Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we can not say whether or not the tour will take place. You are welcome to tentatively sign up for the tour. As of right now, the tour is planned for Monday July 27th at 9:00am, please RSVP by noon July 17th to 403-794-2311.

- To qualify, all candidates must maintain their own yard (i.e. no hired gardeners or landscapers).
- Yards must be a minimum of one acre in size to qualify.
