Lexington named top city for 2016 America in Bloom awards

For efforts related to urban forestry

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 19, 2016) — Lexington received top honors at the 2016 America in Bloom (AIB) symposium on Oct. 8 in Arroyo Grande, Calif. The city earned the highest rating of five blooms, and was named the population category winner for communities over 50,000. On the opening day of the symposium, Lexington was recognized for its exceptional efforts related to urban forestry.

This is Lexington’s third year participating in the awards program, and its first year receiving five blooms.

Cities that participate in America in Bloom’s awards program are judged on six criteria: overall impression, environmental awareness, heritage preservation, urban forestry, landscaped areas and floral displays.

The city’s local AIB affiliate, America in Bloom Lexington, compiled a community profile which highlights public and private efforts related to each criterion. This document was reviewed by two judges from the national organization, who visited Lexington in April.

Lexington is the host city for the 2018 national America in Bloom symposium.
