The Clean, Green & Beautiful Committee works to develop a common vision to enhance the function, look and feel of where we live, work and play. This is achieved through public art, beautification, heritage and environmental greening initiatives, all geared towards the goal of enhancing civic pride.

The Committee formed after City Council endorsed a Clean, Green and Beautiful Policy, developed during more than a year of research, discussion and hard work by the Mayor's Task Force on Civic Pride.

  • To identify and prioritize short- and long-term projects to enhance the image of the City
