You Now Live in The AWARD WINNING University Park

At last night’s City Council meeting it was announced that University Park was named one of Texas’ most scenic cities for 2010, an honor that takes into account everything from landscaping along major roadways to screening dumpsters to underground utility wires.

University Park was named a bronze scenic city by Scenic City Certification Program, a group sponsored by Scenic Texas and the Texas Municipal League.

But, there’s still room for improvement. (After all, bronze isn’t given to first place). Step up your game, UP.

The 2010 Certified Scenic Cities are:

Gold
Flower Mound
Westlake
Georgetown
Belton

Silver
Keller
Sugar Land
Mesquite
Granbury

Bronze
Missouri City
Irving
University Park
Bastrop

Recognized
Horseshoe Bay
South Padre Island

For more information and the entire 72-point application, visit the Scenic City Certification Program.

    Speaking of landscaping, does anyone know why ALL the landscaping at Lovers and 75 is DEAD?
