Bluegrass Tomorrow hands out annual Vision Awards

November 4, 2013 

Don Robinson, owner of Winter Quarter Farm, was named the 2013 Josephine Abercrombie Vision Award winner at Bluegrass Tomorrow's annual Vision Awards breakfast.

Robinson was cited for his leadership as chairman of Lexington's planning commission in making the motion for minimum-lot acreage from 10 to 40 acres in agricultural areas.

Mayor Ed Burtner of Winchester, who has been an advocate for Bluegrass Station and the Bluegrass Army Depot and is active in many regional organizations, won the Bluegrass Legacy Vision Award.

Kentucky State University's new floating laboratory on the Kentucky River, Knox van Nagell of the Fayette Alliance, Bluegrass Greensource, and the National Park Service and the Rivers Trails Conservation Assistance Program were among the other Vision Award honorees for service to the organization and the 18-county region.

The special Robert Clay Award was presented to Judy Clabes of Kentucky Forward as Bluegrass Tomorrow's "most valuable" board member, who has done the most to improve the organization over the last year.
