CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Several Chesterfield County department programs and initiatives recently received national recognition by the country’s leading association for counties.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) recently presented Chesterfield with 14 awards during its 2020 Achievement Awards Program.
For 50 years, NACo’s annual awards program is designed to recognize the ways local governments are providing better, more innovative services to their residents, and strengthening communities across the country. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received.
NACo recognized 540 entries from counties and state associations in 30 states during the 2020 awards cycle. Chesterfield received recognition in nine of the 15 categories that include children and youth, information technology, parks and recreation, planning and many more.
“Year after year, we strive to find better ways to connect and engage with our residents and business community,” said County Administrator Dr. Joseph Casey. “Our staff continues to bring innovative programs and initiatives to fruition that improve the overall customer experiences. To see that hard work being nationally recognized and many localities replicating these programs is a testimony to the dedicated employees we have in Chesterfield.”
The 2020 award winners are:
Citizen Information and Resources
Parks & Recreation*
Mental Health Support Services
