Communities in Bloom International Judging

July 15, 2018

What is happening?
This year we are entered in the INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE of the program.
July 16th, 2018, International Judges Larry Hall from Canada and Bernadette Solon from Ireland, will arrive in Pincher Creek to evaluate our accomplishments with respect to:  

  • Tidiness (clean-ups, litter, condition of buildings, sidewalks)
  • Landscaped Areas (plantings, maintenance)
  • Turf Areas (grass maintenance, weed control)
  • Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation (preservation, historical)
  • Trees/Urban Forestry (tree planting, tree pruning and care)
  • Floral displays (beds and baskets),
  • Environmental (recycling, weed pulls and other initiatives)
  • Community Involvement (citizens and groups of all ages)
Judges and local volunteers will tour through at least 80% of the community including the residential, business, industrial, institutional and public areas.
We will be competing against: City of Lewes, Delaware, USA; Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain MB Canada; Municipality of Jasper, AB Canada; Town of Stetter, AB, Canada; Town of Novi Vinodolski, Croatia.
