On behalf of the Board of Directors of Communities in Bloom, I would like to thank all those involved in the continued success of the organization. The commitment of local, provincial and national volunteers, the support of elected officials and staff of municipalities, the dedication of our volunteer judges, staff and organizations along with the contribution of our sponsors and partners are helping to make our communities cleaner, greener, more environmentally sound and better places to live in, work in and to visit.
Comments (provided in 2015) on the evaluation report:
“Our council sees first-hand the value of the evaluation report year to year and is how budgeting is justified.”
“The report and the discussions with the judges leading to its preparation give us a new appreciation of the things we do well in our community and the things that could use improvement.”
95% of evaluated communities indicated that the recommendations were practical and applicable.
“It (The evaluation report) gave us insight into some issues facing our community from an independent third party.”
“It (The evaluation report) provides us with an honest insight to how our community looks and operates. We find that the suggestions are helpful and positive. Also, they provide a good guideline with realistic goals to achieve.”
“We use the information to create our strategic plan at the community association level. We like the set of eyes that have either never been to the community or who have in the past and see growth. The report is read, evaluated, dissected, and then a new plan is created for the coming year.”
“(The evaluation report provides) Very informative with clear recommendations to work towards improvements.”
