Des Plaines Announces 2017 Mayor's Curb Appeal Challenge

The City of Des Plaines invites its residents to participate in this year's 4th Annual Mayor’s Curb Appeal Challenge. Past participation exceeded expectations as residents took advantage of the opportunity to shop Des Plaines and beautify their homes. Thanks to the returned support from Village Bank & Trust, we will once again be able to offer cash prizes to homeowners with the Best and Most Improved Curb Appeal.

We hope residents plan on taking advantage of additional savings by shopping at Lurvey’s Garden Center, Diamond Paint and Home Center, Sherwin-Williams Paint, and Pesche’s Flowers the weekend of May 20th and 21st and take 20% off purchases with the Curb Appeal Challenge coupon.

To enter your home in the Best or Most Improved Curb Appeal category, visit before June 23rd. Once all entries are received, the Des Plaines Garden Club will narrow down the entries to four finalists in each category.

Beginning July 5th, plan on voting for your favorites to determine the Village Bank & Trust cash prize winners of $500 and $250 in each category. For more information about this year’s Curb Appeal Challenge, to download a 20% off coupon, or to enter your home for the chance to win, visit, call 847.391.5301, or visit the Mayor's Office on the 6th Floor of City Hall.
