Brockville CiB Committee / 23 June 2018

Lots of people who read “Communities in Bloom” think that it is an assessment of how “pretty” each community is, but very few people understand just what Communities in Bloom is, and why it is so important to communities like ours across the country. Luckily for them, the Communities in Bloom Brockville committee is here to shed more light on the competition, and educate our citizens on the perks of being a part of this great program.

As stated in the first edition of the Communities in Bloom blog, the evaluation of each community is split up into six sectors. These sectors include: Environmental Action, Floral Displays, Heritage Conservation, Landscaped Areas, Tidiness, and Urban Forestry & Trails. Each of these sectors is further broken down into Municipal, Business & Institutional, Residential, and Community Involvement to help the judges fairly evaluate each aspect of the community. Each of the main sectors has specific requirements or measurables due to the differences from category to category. In this week’s blog, we’re going to break them all down. Enjoy!
