What Is the Beautification Advisory Committee?
If the City of Berkley is a canvas, the Beautification Advisory Committee is the artist that takes a wide-angled view of the community, develops recommendations, and then advises City leaders about various methods to improve the aesthetics of the City. Committee members add value by implementing the proposed beautification plans.

Committee recommendations may also identify a number of initiatives aimed at engaging residents and community groups to keep the city clean and beautiful year-round. Examples of committee activities include the following:

  • Planting flower gardens
  • Tree Preservation
  • Blight removal
  • Storefront improvements
  • Open space needs
  • Annual paint up-cleanup-fix up event
  • Beautification projects on municipal property
  • Christmas holiday decorations

Who We Are.
Beautification Advisory Committee members are appointed by the City Council and serve a three-year term. There's no limit on the number of members, and anyone who's a registered voter or property owner can join.
