The Scenic Texas organization recently recognized the Town of Flower Mound with its highest honor, a Gold Scenic City Award, for having the highest level of scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces.
Flower Mound was one of only four Texas municipalities to receive the Gold honor at an awards ceremony in Austin on September 16.
According to town officials, Flower Mound received the award based upon evaluations of the Town’s Comprehensive Master Plan, Open Space Plan, Median and Right-of Way Master Plan, SMARTGrowth Plan, fence and sidewalk replacement programs, sign code and ordinances, and natural environment, including The Mound. In addition, Flower Mound’s “It’s Your Call” program was also recognized.
Scenic Texas developed the Scenic City Certification Program to recognize Texas cities which have strong scenic standards and will provide an incentive to others to adopt and implement the kind of stringent criteria that has been proven to enhance economic development, improve quality of life, and foster a sense of place.
