The 2023 provincial Communities in Bloom competition includes North Bay.
Clean Green Beautiful (CGB) North Bay says the city will be competing against other Ontario cities that are similar in size, noting this is a great opportunity to showcase how beautiful North Bay is and what it has to offer.
Six areas will be judged:
– Community Appearance
– Environmental Action
– Heritage Conservation
– Tree Management
– Plant & Floral Displays
“Participating in Communities in Bloom has many benefits including growth in civic pride, a positive sense of community, and tangible improvements generated by their efforts,” says Hariett Madigan, Chair of CGB North Bay.
The local group has a number of initiatives on the go including Streetscapes, where residents can nominate a neighbour or business for their beautiful yard or storefront.
Along with the annual community-wide clean-up on Earth Day, another initiative includes Clean Sweep, where businesses keep their storefronts clean and litter free.
According to the Communities in Bloom website, provincial award ceremonies are held in the fall.
