Posted by zachary on June 12, 2019

The City of Zachary Beautification Committee awards businesses whose contributions beautify and improve the City of Zachary.  Categories include Landscaping and Architectural. 

The committee is proud to announce The Beautification Landscaping Award was presented to Oakwood Village, located at 4400 McHugh Road. According to the committee members, Oakwood Village has a pleasing curb appeal, with an inviting water fountain entrance. The landscaping offers a variety of blooming plants that attract the attention of those visiting the facility.  The grounds are well manicured and offer vibrant colors.

After reviewing nominations from the public, the beautification committee decided to also award a business that made substantial improvements to the exterior of their building and whose business visually enhances the surrounding neighborhood. The recipient of the Architectural Award was presented to Z Market, 4746 Main Street.  Z Market is to be complimented for their overall building design improvements, including a new façade and interior rehabilitation.  The building, which is located at the gateway of our Zachary Historic Village creates an attractive, appealing place to do business.  To give character to the business, the new owners incorporated woodwork and windows from plank houses that once stood in the historical district.

The Zachary Beautification Committee would like to thank the owners of Oakwood Village and Z Market for reflecting pride and ownership and commitment to the beautification of our city. "These efforts not only affect the impression given to a visitor, but they also create a contagious sense of pride for local residents as well", says Mayor David Amrhein.
