The Scenic City Certification Program is the first in the United States to incorporate a comprehensive set of model standards for design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one program. Applicant cities present their existing standards for assessment and scoring against the model. Cities with the highest evaluation scores are certified.
Anne Culver, executive director of the Scenic City Certification Program, said, “These sixteen cities exemplify the idea that by implementing strong scenic standards citizens can enjoy a higher quality of life and businesses find it easier to attract customers and employees. This is a win-win situation for these cities, their residents and for the promise of future quality of life and economic development.”
The Texas cities certified Scenic in 2011:
BudaCedar Hill Fairview Frisco Grapevine
|Heath||Horseshoe Bay||Hutto||Mansfield||McAllen||North Richland Hills|
All Texas cities may submit applications for the 2012 round of Scenic City evaluations beginning January 1, 2012. Applications are available online. For more information on the Scenic City Certification Program visit: www.sceniccitycertification.org
