As the city of Pasadena continues to grow, the need for more green spaces as a haven and respite is increasingly vital. Every five years, Pasadena Beautiful presents the Commercial Design Award to select businesses, institutions and multi-family residences in recognition of their effort to create exceptional landscapes for their projects that benefits the people working nearby, living in it, the environment and the community. This award is dedicated to the memory of founding members Ted Behr, Bob Cheesewright and Mary Frances Russell who contributed to the success of Pasadena Beautiful.
Due to the ongoing situation with the Covid-19, the board of
directors have decided to cancel the Commercial Design Awards for 2021.
