SANDUSKY - This Erie County city was named the winner of the America in Bloom competition for cities with populations of 25,001 to 50,000.
It was the third year Sandusky had entered the contest, which critiques cities nationwide on their landscaping and urban forestry, their environmental practices, heritage and historic preservation efforts, tidiness, and community involvement.
Bowling Green, which entered in the same category as Sandusky and three other cities, was cited for its heritage conservation work. Judges visited each community this summer.
