2009 Program and Results

Filed under:

National Finalist in the 55,001 to 150,000 Population Category

Recipient of a 5 Bloom Rating

And the Waste Management Environmental Awareness Award

The City of Kawartha Lakes, a finalist in the 55,001 to 150,000 population category of the 2009 National Edition of Communities in Bloom, received a 5 Bloom rating and a special mention ­for Interconnected Heritage Destinations and Waterways, as well as the Waste Management Environmental Awareness Award.

The City of Kawartha Lakes is a collection of quaint communities in “a land of shining waters”.  As the judges travelled from one “neighbourhood” to another by road or by water, the heritage details of each unfolded as a seemingly interconnected and often supportive and complementary history and storyline of the region, all in a collective and cohesive fashion.  One could only imagine the past significance of the railways as we visited heritage train stations and vestiges of railway equipment on display as museum pieces.  The scenic Trent Severn Waterway that crosses the City of Kawartha Lakes and is interconnected to several adjoining lakes and communities added to the historic setting and truly remarkable, romantic ambiance.

Environmental Awareness Award

The City of Kawartha Lakes has many environmental efforts in place, with extremely high stakeholder engagement, utilizing the “Environment First Principle” as the basis for all planning decisions.  Congratulations Kawartha Lakes.
