Cedar Park receives Scenic City certification

Cedar Park has been awarded its Scenic City Certification through the Scenic City program, which recognizes municipalities throughout the state for commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces, according to Scenic Texas.

The city was included in a list of 13 cities that re-certified or upgraded their distinction, Scenic Texas announced Tuesday.

The Scenic City Certification Program is the first program in the United States to incorporate a set of model standards for design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one program, according to a spokesperson with Scenic City.

Scenic Texas executive vice president Anne Culver said cities can see detailed analysis of existing infrastructure standards through the certification program.


"We are pleased so many municipalities participated this year, earning either first-time certification or re-certification,” she said.

There are 71 certified Texas cities. Other cities earning first-time certification or recertification in 2017 included:

  • Bedford

  • Bulverde

  • Colleyville

  • Cuero

  • Horseshoe Bay

  • Houston

  • Lancaster

  • Leon Valley

There will be a reception for the 13 cities on Oct. 5 in Houston during the Texas Municipal League’s Annual Conference Week. For more information about the program, visit www.sceniccitycertification.org.
