The judges from Communities in Bloom visited Port McNeill Monday, July 18.
They were pleased with the warm reception they received from Mayor Gerry Furney and our fine town.
They recognized the efforts made by many of our residents, businesses, volunteers and our municipality.
The Communities in Bloom program sets out the criteria that can make a town successful over the long term: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape design and floral displays.
The judges saw Port McNeill’s very real potential in each of the criteria for building our community so it will draw new residents and businesses.
The judges now are busy doing their detailed evaluation showing our strengths and providing suggestions for future successes.
The results will be announced at the provincial Communities in Bloom convention this autumn.
