Neighboring City Earns Esteemed Scenic City Certification

Jul 16, 2015 12:42PM, Published by Tyler Hicks, Categories: Life+Leisure, Today, City+School



The city of Westlake has been awarded Gold level Scenic City Certification  joining 20 Texas cities earning a five-year certification from 2015-2020.

The Scenic City Certification Program, a project of Scenic Texas and its statewide partners, recognizes cities with strong scenic infrastructure standards. Cities can apply to the program to have its standards measured against model standards of design and development of public roadways and public spaces. The city is scored on more than 70 criteria, ranging from percentage of park and open space to strong litter enforcement laws. Based on this score, cities may earn Recognized, Bronze, Siler, Gold or Platinum Certification.

“We are appreciative of this recognition,” says Westlake Town Manager Tom Brymer. “Westlake has worked hard to develop strong aesthetic standards that reflect the unique, natural beauty of our community.”

Westlake was first certified in 2010 with the inaugural class of certified Scenic cities as a gold medal recipient. When recertifying the city, the program commended Westlake’s conservation of its natural features, its underground utility requirement and strict signage guidelines.

Westlake was founded in 1956 and is home to several corporate campuses, small independent businesses including the internationally recognized Deloitte University campus. It is also home to the esteemed public charter school Westlake Academy and the Solana Club. Since the city’s founding, Westlake residents have come to expect the very best from their community.

A reception will be held on September 24 at The Grand Hyatt in San Antonio to present Westlake and the other municipalities with their certifications.
