 The City of Venice has been awarded two prestigious awards from America in Bloom, a national nonprofit organization that promotes civic pride and the beautification of cities.
The City of Venice was awarded “Coolest Downtown” and “Outstanding Achievement Award for Landscaped Areas.” These awards were announced during the virtual Symposium in the Sky educational conference awards celebration September 30-October 2, where 46 cities participated.
The 2020 Venice awards were the direct result of VABI volunteers and the of Venice Public Works Department that make Venice a beautiful place to work, live and play on a daily basis. A volunteer committee made up of VABI’s Bloom Team, Team KVB, and the Venice Area Garden Club organized the efforts. The Public Works department helps keep our beautiful landscaping and flower baskets in great shape. One special part of this was the effort of the Garden Club and Team KVB when Corky Dalton of Team KVB videotaped a piece on the bromeliad garden.
The” Coolest Town” award considers the buildings, trees, landscaping, plantings, furnishings, signage, banners, containers, fountains, color, and vitality of the downtown. Is it a fun place for people of all ages. It showcases a community where residents are actively going downtown when they're looking for fun. The “Outstanding Achievement Award for Landscaped Areas” demonstrates well-kept beautiful and manicured landscaping for the leadership, design, installation, and maintenance of landscape (shrubs, ornamental grasses, vines, evergreen topiaries), turf, and groundcovers.

VABI Board is made up of 16 volunteers as board members and one staff coordinator.
