Communities in Bloom
"People, plants and pride... growing together" is the Communities in Bloom slogan, and it captures the essence of the program.
Kamloops Communities in Bloom is more than just flowers, it is about getting people involved in making their community a better place to live, to work and to visit. The Kamloops Communities in Bloom Committee is committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national competition, with focus on the promotion and value of green spaces within urban settings.
Through hard work, dedication and a wonderful community to work with, Kamloops has won several Communities in Bloom competitions on the national stage. We are competing internationally in 2012 and hope to once again wow the judges with the city we call home, Kamloops.
We are a community based team with representation from all ages and walks of life. Our committee is comprised of members from a broad spectrum including from the business community, local media, arts and culture sector, recreation and tourism.
The Communities in Bloom Committee is proud to act in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and City Council and more specifically to the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department of the City of Kamloops. It is their leadership and enthusiasm for the Communities in Bloom program that has inspired and motivated committee members, volunteer groups, businesses, service clubs and residents as a whole. The results in Kamloops are many. Visible improvements such as increased flora and fauna, sustainable environmental initiatives, heritage conservation, 'Tournament Capital' projects and extraordinary community involvement clearly demonstrates that we "Help Showcase Kamloops!"
The Kamloops Communities in Bloom Committee is a local, community based committee, not a committee of Council. We are autonomous. Members of the committee can be anyone from the Kamloops general public who share the goals of Communities in Bloom.
We work hard year round, not just when the flowers are blooming! We host numerous events including planter competitions, seasonal celebrations, KIA Drive Change days, neighbourhood cleanups, graffiti paint outs and much more.
Last year we mentored neighbouring community Logan Lake, helping them achieve a 4 bloom status and helping them improve their community from within.
