KHB seeks nominations for best-maintained properties

The Keep Henrico Beautiful (KHB) Committee is seeking outstanding residential and commercial properties for the 2011 Land Lover and Clean Business awards. Nominations for exemplary homes and businesses from each of the five magisterial districts will be accepted through Saturday, April 30.

To be considered for the award, properties should be attractively landscaped, well-maintained and litter-free. Homeowners should perform their own landscaping and lawn-care work. In addition, property owners must participate in an ongoing recycling program, such as composting, curbside pickup or drop-off service.

Winners will have an award sign posted on their property during June and will be recognized at a Board of Supervisors meeting.

Henrico residents and business owners may nominate their own properties as well as others. Forms and criteria can be accessed online at http://www.henricokhb.org or by calling KHB at 501-4502; nominations can be submitted online or by mail.

The Land Lover and Clean Business awards have been presented annually since 1995. For details, contact Keep Henrico Beautiful.
