DENTON, TX, Oct. 7, 2016 – On Thursday, Oct. 6, City of Denton officials – including Council Members Dalton Gregory and Keely Briggs, as well as City staff – were presented with Denton’s new Gold-level Scenic City Certification during a reception at the Texas Municipal League annual conference in Austin. Denton is one of 23 cities in the state to earn first-time or upgraded certification for 2016.

Denton was first recognized as a Bronze-level Scenic City in 2014; and, this year, the City increased its ranking by two levels due to improvements in codes, ordinances, and standards related to aesthetics and community appearance. Scenic Texas cited the following elements as key in earning this upgraded recognition: Denton’s Main Street Program, strong unity of design standards, innovative waste management efforts, and emphasis on public parks, trails, and green spaces.
