Lakeway Earns Prominent Scenic City Certification

Mayor Cox and Interim City Manager Julie Oakley hold Scenic Cities Award

The City of Lakeway has been awarded Gold Scenic City Certification for the second time by Scenic Texas. Lakeway is one of 22 cities in Texas earning first-time certification or re-certification.


The Scenic City Certification Program is the first in the U.S. to incorporate a comprehensive set of model standards for design and development of public roadways and public spaces into one program. The program draws a direct correlation between the success of a city’s economic development efforts and the visual appearance of its public spaces. The program recognizes municipalities that implement high-quality scenic standards.


Lakeway was officially awarded the Scenic City Certification at a reception on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at The Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, during the Texas Municipal League’s Annual Conference Week. Read the Texas-wide press release that was issued earlier this summer.


Joining Scenic Texas as partners in the Scenic City Certification Program are the Texas Municipal League, Urban Land Institute — Austin and Houston, Urban Land Institute — San Antonio, American Planning Association Texas, Houston-Galveston Area Council, American Council of Engineering Companies Houston, Hill Country Alliance, Keep Texas Beautiful, Texas Downtown Association, Texas Economic Development Council, Texas Historical Commission, Association of Rural Communities in Texas (ARCIT), Texas Association of Regional Councils, North Central Texas Council of Governments, Scenic Houston and Scenic America.
