Colonie, N.Y. – The Colonie Chamber of Commerce’s Government Relations, Economics, and Transportation (G*R*E*A*T) Committee announced the recipients of the 2013 Town of Colonie Community Beautification Achievement Awards, Saints Plaza developed by Saints Plaza LLC for New Construction, Plaza 492 developed by TFB Development for Redevelopment, and The Village of Menands’ “Grow Menands” program for Curb Appeal. Saints Plaza (Saints Plaza LLC), Plaza 492 (TFB Development), and The Village of Menands will be honored at the Colonie Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at the Century House.
 
Presented by the Colonie Chamber’s G*R*E*A*T Committee and the Town of Colonie, the Town of Colonie Community Beautification Achievement Awards were created in an effort to enhance the quality of life in the Town of Colonie and encourage contributions to the community’s physical environment. The three award categories are New Construction, Redevelopment, and Curb Appeal.
 
“As a long time resident, I look forward to working with the Town of Colonie to give recognition to those organizations who go the extra mile and help improve the appearance of their property through both design and aesthetics, explains CG Frink, 2014 Executive Board Chair and member of the G*R*E*A*T Committee. “It’s one of the reasons why so many choose Colonie as their home, for both themselves and their business.”
 
Last year The Colonie Chamber’s G*R*E*A*T Committee and the Town of Colonie recognized Shaker Pointe at Carondelet for New Construction, Hannoush Jewelers for Redevelopment, and Bowen & Parker Brothers Funeral Home for Curb Appeal.
