Alexandria Beautification Commission Announces 2008 Beautification Award Winners
The Commission sponsors the Alexandria Beautification Awards each year to recognize residents’ special efforts to contribute to the beautification of their neighborhoods and public vistas with landscaping and overall aesthetic design. Nominations are made by members of the Commission and the community and are judged by members on the use of plants, texture and color, neighborhood context, marked improvements, and overall appearance. Winners are limited to those whose properties are visible from the public right of way. Awards are given in residential, commercial, public, and service categories.
For more information about the Awards program, please e-mail Marie Johnston, Chair of the Beautification Commission, at Marie.Johnston@navy.mil. For additional information about the Beautification Commission, call 703.838.4343.
