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 beautifully landscaped and maintained.

The Henrico County Board of Supervisors recognized the 10 recipients of the 2017 Land Lover and Clean Business awards during its meeting Tuesday, June 27. 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. This year marks the 22nd year of Henrico’s Land Lover and Clean Business awards.

The winners of the Land Lover award for residential properties are Julian Pemberton of the Brookland District, Robert and Kiely Sharpe of the Fairfield District, Aubrey and Elaine Garner of the Three Chopt District, Sandee Bailey of the Tuckahoe District and Christie Stuart Johnathan of the Varina District.

The winners of the Clean Business award are 2nd & Charles, 9004 W. Broad St. in Brookland; Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, 1800 Lakeside Ave. in Fairfield; Exxon/7-Eleven, 9525 W. Broad St. in Three Chopt; Colonial Athletic Association, 8625 Patterson Ave. in Tuckahoe; and Victory Farms, 7001 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.
