The city of Bee Cave on Thursday was recognized as an official Platinum Scenic City through the Scenic City Certification Program. According to its website, the mission of the Scenic City Certification Program is to support and recognize Texas municipalities that implement high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces.
Mayor Monty Parker accepted the award at the Texas Municipal League’s annual conference in Fort Worth Thursday, Oct. 11. City staff originally applied to be a Scenic City in 2016 and received a gold status along with a list of improvements needed to become a certified scenic city.
