Minerva Properties is pleased to announce that Heron Bay Golf & Country Club, its master planned community located in Locust Grove, has been named as this year’s Grand Award Winner in the Outstanding Development category by the Georgia Urban Forest Council. Annually, as part of its mission to sustain Georgia's green legacy by helping communities grow healthy trees, GUFC enthusiastically rewards individuals, organizations, businesses, municipalities, counties and others for outstanding work in protecting and enhancing our community forests.
The Outstanding Development Initiative category covers new development that focus on good urban forestry practices, such as tree preservation and protection, and working with natural ecosystems. “At Heron Bay, we strived to set an example of how a new community can accommodate and accentuate the natural features of the land to create a very desirable place to live,” said Brian Davison, the co-Managing Partner of Minerva Properties, LLP.
“By partnering with Henry and Spalding counties, the Water and Sewerage Authority, and all of the builders in Heron Bay, we were able to protect the delicate balance of the forested areas, along with the delicate preservation of the streams that feed into Cole Reservoir, Henry County’s largest water supply. We are very honored to receive this award, and we hope that Heron Bay will attract the attention of other developers, serving as an example as to how a community can be developed while still maintaining a respectful relationship with the environment.” While developing Heron Bay, natural features often overlooked in other projects were identified and preserved. Roads, utilities, and homesites were adjusted to save these features, such as a huge specimen American Beech Tree, now located in a preserved green space and visible for everyone who drives along Heron Bay Boulevard. Using the expertise of the Minerva development team, the construction process has proven to be a success and has had minimal impact on waterways and open spaces. Heron Bay Golf & Country Club was nominated for the Outstanding Development award by Tim Thoms, who has worked with the GUFC since its inception and is very familiar with the development of Heron Bay. “I nominated Heron Bay for this award because I believe the community is one of the best projects I have seen in the way that it strives to develop with the environment,” said Thoms. “At the same time, it not only provides the basic necessities of an affordable and liveable community, it also provides resort-style amenities.
By using good urban forestry practice, tree preservation and protection, and a healthy respect for the natural ecosystem, Heron Bay has shown itself to have all the qualities of an outstanding development.” In addition to preserved open space and greenways, a trail system also runs throughout Heron Bay. Over 25,000 cubic yards of mulch was generated from trees removed on-site and used to build the trails, serving as a temporary erosion control and to protect the ground in buffer areas.
Over 3,500 trees have been planted in the right of way and amenities areas since construction started at Heron Bay in 2002.
Minerva has partnered with Henry and Spalding counties to allow for street trees to be planted along all roadways twice yearly during the dormant season. Due to proper selection by a certified arborist and landscape architect, adequate planting space, and an ongoing system of care and education in partnership with the Homeowner’s Association, the success and growth of the trees has been phenomenal.

The award was presented to Heron Bay Golf & Country Club on November 16 at the Annual Awards Luncheon as part of the Georgia Urban Forest Council’s 16th Annual Conference & Awards Luncheon, which took place November 15-17 2006, at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. The Georgia Urban Forest Council’s mission is to sustain Georgia's green legacy by helping communities grow healthy trees. The organization provides resources to promote the importance of trees throughout Georgia by leveraging user-friendly technology, influencing the policy-making process and providing cutting edge programming. GUFC offers a variety of programs and opportunities, including Basic Tree Care Workshops, Educational Quarterly Meetings, publications such as TreeTalks and informational brochures, the Annual Conference, an Annual Awards Program, the Landmark and Historic Tree Register, and more. Named the “Community of the Year” in 2005 by the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association, Heron Bay Golf & Country Club is a master-planned community developed by Minerva Properties, which will be home to more than 2,300 families when complete.

Heron Bay features a full complement of unparalleled amenities in a resort-style setting in Locust Grove, Georgia, just south of Atlanta.
