Making Texas an uncommonly beautiful state happens community by community. Scenic Texas keeps current with local scenic issues across the state through its chapters in Austin, Comal County, Dallas, Fayette County, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, and through new chapters in formation. Our affiliate organization, Scenic Galveston, is the leader in protecting and preserving one of Texas’ most treasured estuaries. Together, we all are making Texas a state of vision.
Scenic City Certification Program
In 2010, Scenic Texas launched the Scenic City Certification Program to support and recognize Texas cities that implement high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces. The goal of the program, developed with national, statewide and local partners, is to improve the image of all Texas cities. Visit http://www.sceniccitycertification.org
State Public Policy Program
Scenic Texas and its chapters work in Austin to provide information, education and advocacy concerning statewide scenic issues. These issues include the designation of scenic highways, funding for landscaping and tree planting, protection from new billboard construction and the enforcement of existing laws.
Scenic Education Forums
Scenic Texas partners with other statewide organizations to present education forums for local government attorneys, city planners, elected officials and other stakeholders interested in the laws and policies that shape our state’s scenic character, community by community. Partners have included the Texas Municipal League, Texas City Attorneys Association and the Texas Conference of Urban Counties.
