City of Miami - Environmental Excellence Awards Spotlight!
City of Miami Wins!
100 degree Oklahoma summers and no swimming pool? Can you imagine? As the City of Miami’s municipal swimming pool reached 80 long years as the state’s largest municipal swimming pool, the decayed facility was seeping, and wasting, water. Fortunately for swimmers and sunshine lovers, the City of Miami finished the renovation of the city pool just in time for the 2005 swim season! And! In time to win the 2005 Government Beautification and Landscaping Award.
The upgrades included a new pool lining, fencing, decking, chairs, three slides for three age levels, a multi-play water structure, new bathhouses, a new adult rest area with TV, lockers and a water misting system.
Although a swimming pool may seem a small need, a safe, friendly, and welcoming community space is a focal point for civic pride.
Every day across Oklahoma, communities are coming together to accomplish great things. With very little resources but often a lot of effort these projects have a direct impact on our state. For 25 years Keep Oklahoma Beautiful has been recognizing these great works but it is up to you to make sure we know about them. Have a project that made a difference? An initiative that made an impact?
Have you seen something in your community that needs to be recognized? Does this sound like a group or organization you know? They could be this year’s winner. We have categories (Click Here!) to fit projects big and small, private businesses and community organizations and everything in between. Nominations are open until August 10th. We want to know about it! Your efforts are an inspiration to us all. http://bit.ly/EECNom
The nomination process takes moments and we want to celebrate to you.
