2001 - Exceptional Merit Award - Government/Beautification & Landscpaing - City of Piedmont

Driving into the City of Piedmont from the south on State Highway 4 these days is a real treat. An Oklahoma Department of Transportation tree grant, mixed with creativity and some hard work, has resulted in an entrance into town that is improved, enhanced and embraced by all who see it.

Forty-five trees and 63 shrubs, all selected for their heartiness in central Oklahoma, now make a lasting impression on people passing through, or, as the judges said, the beautified entrance is “a nice counterpoint to prairie landscape and it should accomplish ‘memorability’ for visitors to Piedmont.”

With the city providing weekly maintenance, the Kiwanis Club keeping the area free of trash and debris, and the Chamber of Commerce planning to add some windmills, it’s safe to say that THE CITY OF PIEDMONT IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE WINDS OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRESS IN OKLAHOMA!
