Scenic City Certification logo

Rowlett has been recognized as a 2019 Certified Scenic City award recipient at the Gold level through the Scenic City Certification Program, a project of Scenic Texas and its 15 Program Partner organizations. The program recognizes cities for their demonstrated commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces. It is the only program of its kind in the United States to devise a comprehensive set of model standards for the design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one evaluation program. 


Official certification is earned by cities that score points in the upper range and meet threshold standards for landscaping, tree planting and sign regulation. Scenic Texas is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the visual character of Texas. Visit www.scenictexas.org  for more information.

Shout out to Councilmember Blake Margolis for spearheading this effort and compiling the necessary documentation for this certification!
