Keep Plainview Beautiful has been named a Silver Star Affiliate of the Keep Texas Beautiful program.

The designation, which is the second-highest status a KTB organization can receive, was awarded to just 17 of the state organization’s 300 affiliates.

Community affiliates must pay dues, submit reports, attend trainings and participate in KTB-endorsed activities annually to stay in good standing and to be eligible for the Silver Star recognition. Affiliates are required to share information on their organization’s mission and goals, partnerships and underserved populations, as well as participate in the Beautify Texas Awards or Governor’s Community Achievement Awards programs.

Keep Plainview Beautiful is a non-profit organization focused on doing what its name implies – keeping the city beautiful. It has implemented programs to clean up litter, reduce waste, recycle it when possible, educate local citizens and just enhance the community, according to the news release from the city.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Silver Star Affiliate,” said KPB President Beverly Wall. “The committee and volunteers have worked on many projects to Keep Plainview Beautiful – this honor is a testament to everyone’s hard work.”

Keep Texas Beautiful will formally recognize Silver Star communities in June during the 54th annual conference.
