In July 2017, the City of Bulverde was selected as 1 of 13 Texas municipalities to be awarded Scenic City Certification through the Scenic City Certification Program, a project of Scenic Texas. The Scenic City program supports and recognizes cities for commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces. Five cities were certified for the first time—including Bulverde.
The Scenic City Certification Program is the first in the United States to incorporate a comprehensive set of model standards for design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one program. Cities apply to the program for a rigorous evaluation and scoring of existing municipal standards against the model. Those with the highest evaluation scores earn certification.
“Through the Scenic City Certification Program, cities access a valuable diagnostic tool,” said Anne Culver, executive vice president of Scenic Texas. “The detailed 360° analysis of existing infrastructure standards supplies cities with a roadmap for future growth and development. We are pleased so many municipalities participated this year, earning either first-time certification or re-certification.”
The Bulverde/Spring Branch Area is rich in history and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and attractions such as the Guadalupe River State Park, Honey Creek State Natural Area, Upper Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake.
