New banners raised in Highland Springs

Along the streets in Eastern Henrico’s Highland Springs, bright banners can be seen on telephone poles, reminiscent of the ones that first were hung 20 years ago in an effort to liven the area. The banners are restoring pride and are part of a community’s answer to revitalization.

Peggy Reid, a longtime resident and member of the Highland Springs Garden Club, believed that the banners should be brought back to life after years of weathering. Reid approached Mark Romers, president of the Eastern Henrico Business Association, with a $500 check that sparked the project.

“I thought it was a great idea and something that the community would be behind,” said Romers. “We had similar ornamental street lights and signs, but over the years they became tattered and worn. It was about time.”

Highland Springs has been around since the 1890s and began as a streetcar suburb of Richmond on the Seven Pines Railway Company’s electric street railway. > Read more.
