The San Luis Obispo Downtown Association recently awarded honors to more than two dozen businesses at its 24th Annual Beautification Awards Breakfast. The awards are given to those businesses that have made physical or aesthetic improvements in 2010.
The Downtown Association’s Design Committee oversaw the process, from selecting the candidates to presenting the awards in categories including new construction, tenant improvements, signs, maintenance, art and green awards.
