[ARCHIVED] League City Certified as "Scenic City"

scenic city

League City has received the 2019 Certified Scenic City Award from Scenic Texas, a nonprofit group that works to enhance the beauty of the state’s cities, especially for travelers. The recognition is part of the group’s Scenic City Certification Program, a nationally recognized model that provides communities with guidelines to design and develop public roads and spaces. 

Scenic Texas reviews interested cities’ infrastructure ordinances compared to the program’s standards and gives official certification to cities that rank high in landscaping, tree planting and sign regulation. The Scenic City Certification Program is the only program of its kind in the United States to devise a comprehensive set of model standards for the design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one evaluation program. 

Any Texas city may apply to the Scenic City Certification Program for an objective review of its existing municipal infrastructure ordinances as they relate to the model standards. Assessment is points-based, and every city applicant receives a detailed, scored evaluation that identifies both strengths and areas for improvement. Official certification is earned by cities that score points in the upper range and meet threshold standards for landscaping, tree planting and sign regulation. Currently, the total number of certified scenic cities in Texas is 82. 

League City received a gold ranking and will be recognized at the Texas Municipal League’s annual conference Oct. 10 in San Antonio.
