Beautification Commission Overview

PlantersThe Northville Beautification Commission preserves and enhances the environment of the City of Northville through public awareness and recognition of outstanding beautification efforts. Through its vision and efforts, the commission also brings planting programs to public spaces and welcomes volunteers who wish to participate.

Meetings are held monthly, spring through fall (no meetings November – March).

Representatives from cities and townships throughout Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties belong to the Beautification Council of Southeastern Michigan. The council holds educational meetings year-round, which strengthens the knowledge and expertise of Beautification Commission members.

The Commission was formed nearly 50 years ago (Feb. 20, 1967) by city ordinance. It has blossomed since then with members’ ideas and green thumbs to practice conservation efforts and preservation of heritage plants and landscape areas. The group also serves as a way to socialize with friends and neighbors who like to garden.
