[ARCHIVED] Bristol STAR - Neighborhood Improvement Award Program

Star Sign

Bristol, Virginia is initiating the “Bristol STAR” program to recognize and thank property owners who have made considerable efforts to invest in their homes through home repairs, yard maintenance and clean-up, landscaping, and general appearance improvements.  The city has formed the Bristol’s Neighborhood Pride Committee to oversee the program. 

Nominations can be made via the city website and awards will be made on a quarterly basis throughout the year.  A Bristol STAR sign will be temporarily placed at the residence to recognize the efforts of the household. 

The goal of the program is to encourage clean-up and investment in the city’s residential neighborhoods.  The committee is also looking at other programs to further that goal, including an “Adopt-a-Spot” with neighborhood and community volunteers, and partnering with the Chamber of Commerce’s Keep Bristol Beautiful program on community wide clean-up days.    

 “The City wants to encourage its residents to have pride in their community and neighborhoods,” states Randall Eads, City Manager. “By recognizing and appreciating homeowner and other property investments, we hope the Bristol STAR program will spur neighbors to take notice and invest in their own homes.   The end result will be for the City to become a more vibrant and inviting place to live, work, and visit.”

If you are interested in more information about the Bristol STAR program, please contact Sally Morgan, City Planner, at 276-645-3784
