    The City of Superior received two awards from the national America in Bloom  Symposium. The awards recognize our efforts in water resources management (Water Warriors Award) and honoring diverse community heritage (Celebrating Heritage Award).  

    In 2019, the City was awarded a grant from CN-EcoConnexions From the Ground Up to plant trees and  shrubs in key locations to beautify the community, increase bird and pollinator habitat, and protect critical  shoreline areas. In addition to installing over 140 native trees and 175 native shrubs along the Osaugie  Trail, Barker’s Island, and Wisconsin Point, the City was able to highlight policies, practices, and  programs that cause Superior to stand out amongst our fellow cities. These efforts were recognized this  week when the City won the Water Warriors and Celebrating Heritage awards presented by project  partner America in Bloom. 

    Mayor Jim Paine said, “I am deeply proud but not even a little bit surprised the America in Bloom  organization recognized the natural and cultural beauty of Superior. The City of Superior continues to  innovate and set the standard for developing and restoring a vibrant community. I’m grateful for the work  of our staff and partners and excited to keep showing off our beautiful city.” 

    “Winning these awards illustrates the strength of a community collaborations.” Said project manager  Andrea B. Crouse, City of Superior Water Resources Program Coordinator. “The City did not do this  alone, we worked with community partners to highlight the best aspects of our community. Winning  theses awards shows just what great work can and does happen in Superior.” 

    Volunteers don’t do their work to get awards but those who represented the community in planning  meetings and AIB judging meetings deserve to be recognized for this achievement. City staff from Public  Works and Parks, Recreation and Forestry worked alongside representatives from Douglas County, UW Extension, Visit Superior, Superior Chamber of Commerce, Superior Master Gardeners, Superior Public  Museums, and citizens to make the project a success while showcasing the exceptional work done across  our community.
