Cedar Hill was recognized as Platinum (Recertified) by Scenic City

Scenic Texas today announced 22 Texas cities have been recognized as 2021 Certified Scenic City award recipients through the Scenic City Certification Program, a program of the statewide nonprofit and its 17 partner organizations.  Cedar Hill was recognized as Platinum (Recertified).

The Scenic City Certification Program recognizes cities for their demonstrated commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and spaces.  

“This year followed similar trends as 2020, when Texans found themselves spending more time in their neighborhoods and considering investments in their immediate communities,” said Sarah Tober, Scenic Texas President. “The Scenic City designation is fast becoming an acknowledgement that residents are committed to creating a more scenic environment for themselves and for visitors, whether that means creating scenic roadways, preserving historic sites, or improving parks and green spaces.” 

Tober explained that the certification process provides cities with a roadmap for future growth and development, and the nonprofit is working on a resource guide that will further outline best practices for Texans who are interested in working to enhance their community's visual environment and certify their cities. 

The Scenic City Certification Program is a nationally recognized, one-of-a-kind model, developed to provide communities with a comprehensive set of standards and evaluations for the design and development of public roadways and spaces.  

Through the Scenic City Certification Program, Scenic Texas provides educational resources to Texas cities that are establishing or revising ordinances that impact the streetscapes. Additionally, Scenic Texas supports urban forestry projects, tree planting and preservation initiatives, the creation of scenic roads and districts, the establishment and funding of parks and green space, the forestation of our highways, and the preservation of historic areas.
