Henrico recognizes attractive residential, business properties

The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee has selected the winners in its annual awards program that recognizes residential and business properties that are attractively landscaped and maintained.

The Board of Supervisors will recognize the 10 recipients of the 2014 Land Lover and Clean Business awards during its meeting Tuesday, June 24. The recipients, who represent a residential and a commercial property from each of Henrico’s five magisterial districts, also will be commended on signs placed at their properties.

The winners of the Land Lover award for residential properties are Linda Stephens of the Brookland District, Valerie Dingle of the Fairfield District, Marilyn Wayland of the Three Chopt District, Cheryl and Allyn Janney Jr. of the Tuckahoe District, and Debbie and Doyle Deaton of the Varina District.

The winners of the Clean Business award are Goodwill Industries, 6202 W. Broad St. in Brookland; Strange’s Florist, 3313 Mechanicsville Turnpike in Fairfield; Wawa, 11052 W. Broad St. in Three Chopt; Bon Secours Medical Facility at Reynolds Crossing, 7001 Forest Ave. in Tuckahoe; and Kingsland Reach Marina, 9680 Osborne Turnpike in Varina.

The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee has presented the awards annually since 1995 to promote high standards for property maintenance. To be eligible for the Land Lover award, residents must perform their own landscaping and lawn care. Nominees for either award must participate in a recycling program, such as composting, curbside pickup or drop-off service.

Photos of winning properties will be posted online after Tuesday’s meeting at henrico.us/utility/keep-henrico-beautiful/awards/.
