The Village Stewardship Award was presented to Lynn Danaher of San Juan Island, the owner of Archipelago Properties. She was the driving force behind the recycling and refurbishment of the Churchill House and the Carter House, two historically significant homes located in Friday Harbor.
In keeping with the original character of the homes, and of the Town of Friday Harbor itself, she remodeled these aging structures using many recycled materials. The homes, now used as office suites, are surrounded by a limited hardscape. This low impact development allows for natural drainage and prevents unnecessary storm water run-off. It also earned Lynn a discount on her stormwater fees from the Town of Friday Harbor, setting precedence for all future developments.
