Corinth and Little Elm are two of 13 Texas cities earning Scenic City Certification for demonstrating commitment to high-quality scenic standards for public roadways and public spaces for 2018, according to news release.

The Scenic City Certification Program is the only program of its kind in the U.S. that sets standards for evaluation for the design and development of public spaces. It is a project of Scenic Texas and is partnered with 15 organizations.

Corinth and Little Elm, certified Silver, are two of the 75 cities in Texas with certification. Corinth’s certification was ranked up and Little Elm is a first-timer.

Cities are evaluated by points, with Silver meaning the cities earned 70 to 79 percent of possible points. The lowest certification is recognition (50 to 59 percent of possible points) and the highest is platinum (90 or more percent of possible points).

A reception to award the 13 cities certified will be held Oct. 11 in Fort Worth during the Texas Municipal League's annual conference.
