See before and after photos and apply on the city website HERE.



Testimonial from a Participant of Phase 1 of the Beautification Program:
"The right-of-way beautification project is complete and looks great. It even motivated me to power wash the sidewalk and paint our mailbox! More importantly, it's effectively absorbing today's heavy rainfall (no run-off, no flooding). Thanks again to the contractors and folks at the City; everyone was great to work with."
