Winners of this year’s Community Revitalization Awards were announced at this week’s Richardson City Council meeting.

The Awards were created to recognize property owners who have enhanced the community by making significant exterior improvements to their properties, which have, in turn, had a positive impact on the surrounding area.

Almost 320 properties have been recognized since the Program’s inception in 1994.

Properties receiving an award are:
