Town awards beautification honors


Farragut’s Beautification Committee awarded its annual Beautification Awards to six local businesses and places of worship.

At Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting Thursday, July 23, Leisure Services Director Sue Stuhl announced the winners of the 26th annual Beautification Awards, judged on criteria including landscape design, selection of plant material, maintenance, first impressions and last impressions.

“You guys set the standard. This is what the Town is all about. We all hope to strive to be as good as you’ve been already,” Mayor Ralph McGill said.

“The diversity of the look is impressive, too,” Alderman Jeff Elliott said.

“Looking at those pictures and having been at a lot of these locations, it’s really impressive what people have done,” he added.

Winner of the Commercial/Office Building category was Jefferson Federal Bank, 11916 Kingston Pike, with an overall score of 90.

Winner of the Commercial/Retail Building category was Red Robin, 11433 Parkside Drive, with an overall score of 90.

Winner of the Residential Entrance category was Fox Run off Union Road, with an overall score of 95.


Winner of the Religious Institution category was Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church, 12915 Kingston Pike, with an overall score of 80.

This is only the second year the committee has judged two new categories: Retail Commercial Complex and Multi-Family Residential Complex, which recognizes entire developments and not single buildings.

Winner of Retail Commercial Complex was The Pinnacle at Turkey Creek Phase III off Parkside Drive, which includes the development from Best Buy to the new Belk, with an overall score of 90.

Finally, the winner of the Multi-Family Residential Complex was Summit View of Farragut, 12823 Kingston Pike, with an overall score of 90.

“As I drive around the Town, I’m thankful I’m not on the committee making these determinations,” Alderman John Williams said.

“We appreciate all those people who have entered. Everyone can’t be a winner, but we are very proud of all those who are here tonight,” Vice Mayor Dot LaMarche said.
