The City of Dripping Springs has been recognized as a Platinum 2019 Certified Scenic City award recipient, the highest recognition through the Scenic City Certification Program, a program of Scenic Texas and its 17 partner organizations. The Scenic City Certification Program recognizes cities for their demonstrated commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and spaces.
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. 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.
“Through the Scenic City Certification Program, cities access a low cost, high rate-of-return diagnostic tool,” said Sarah Tober, Scenic Texas Executive Director. “The detailed evaluation of existing infrastructure standards provides cities with a roadmap for future growth and development. As municipalities continue to aspire to certification and our highest level of recognition, platinum, it is a reflection of communities working to make a more scenic Texas for citizens and visitors.”
The Scenic City certification is not new for Dripping Springs. The City was previously awarded Scenic City certification in 2014 at the gold level. The additional points earned in the scoring, that elevated the city’s ranking this year, is due to amendments to the city’s code of ordinances over the past few years. Dripping Springs’ Scenic City certification is for five years. The City will receive their award on October 10, 2019 in San Antonio during the Texas Municipal League’s Annual Conference week.
