Another award for our city! The Louisiana Garden Club Federation has awarded Lafayette the Cleanest City title for 2012.  Cities are grouped according to size, and this year Lafayette beat out Baton Rouge in its category to win the Cleanest City. The award is bestowed by judges of the Louisiana Garden Club Federation (LGCF) and members of the Lafayette Garden Club help Lafayette Consolidated Government staff prepare for the judges’ visit.  The news was delivered to City-Parish President Joey Durel by Jean Gilstrap, the Cleanest City Contest Chairman.  The judging occurred earlier this spring.

This award is announced just months after learning of Lafayette’s designation once again as Tree City USA© Status.  This marks the 21st year Lafayette has earned the Tree City USA© designation.  The Tree City USA© program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.

Upon learning of Lafayette’s awards, City-Parish President Joey Durel thanked the citizens for their work to keep Lafayette clean, “The city of Lafayette is honored to receive these awards on behalf of our citizens.  Earning the Cleanest City Award and the Tree City USA© designation happens through a team effort, and these are evidence of our strong community pride.  I want to acknowledge the important work of our residents, our businesses, and our Public Works Department to help keep Lafayette clean and beautiful.”
