The Keep Levelland Beautiful has been awarded “Affiliate” status with the Keep Texas Beautiful Program. Levelland has established an on-going program that will sustain the program long term. Affiliate status is obtained by completing program set up steps including Keep Texas Beautiful training, determining organizational status, preparing local mission statement, preparing by laws, organization guidelines, completing facts about community by conducting a “windshield” tour, developing goals/strategic plan and budget and creating community partnerships. Levelland has completed all of the above steps and moved from provisional to an “Affiliate”. Road signs are awarded to only communities that have completed the above and maintain over the program’s tenure.

Keep Levelland Beautiful has been awarded Silver Status within Keep Texas Beautiful based upon completion of litter prevention and beautification efforts. In 2019, Levelland received results from their 2018 Keep Texas Beautiful program work and application of the Governor’s Community Achievement Awards. Keep Levelland Beautiful placed second in the state of Texas for communities with the population of 9,000-15,000, following Henderson, Texas and with Gainsville, TX placing third.

The new sign has been installed at the intersection of East Highway 114 and County Road.
