[ARCHIVED] Newark Conservation Advisory Commission Names "A Better Newark Award" Recipient


Highlighting numerous landscape upgrades, along with the installation of solar panels and water permeable pavers, Newark's Conservation Advisory Commission (CAC) recently awarded the "A Better Newark Award" to Catriona and Stuart Binder-Macleod of 401 Orchard Road. 

"We appreciate being recognized for the enhancements we made to our home," said Catriona Binder-Macleod. "The changes we made were small, individually, but together make a large difference in the overall look and feel of our home and our impact on the environment. We hope others are inspired to make similar changes as well."

 Created in 1986, the "Better Newark Award" recognizes individuals who have made improvements to the appearance of their properties, as well as those who have improved Newark's overall sustainability through energy, soil, or water conservation. 

"Residents who make a concerted effort to improve the appearance of their property while being environmentally conscious are to be commended," said acting city manager Tom Coleman. "The Better Newark Award provides an opportunity to formally recognize their efforts and encourage others to consider environmental upgrades, further enhancing the quality of life for all who live, work and visit the city."

The award is presented periodically and includes a commemorative proclamation signed by the Mayor of Newark accompanied with a mounted photograph. A photograph of the property will also be displayed in the lobby of City Hall.
