What is the Beautification Commission?
The Beautification and Shade Tree Advisory Commission has a primary role in “assisting in improving the overall visual quality of the city. The commission advises the city council on methods and means of enhancing the visual quality of the city.” Input from citizens of Pleasant Grove is extremely important in these efforts as well. Pleasant Grove is divided up into eleven neighborhood areas in the city with a Beautification Commission member from each neighborhood. Citizens can contact their neighborhood commission member or any member if you do not know which neighborhood you’re in.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming involved with the efforts to beautify the city of Pleasant Grove please contact your neighbor commission member or fill out an application to get involved. We currently have two vacancies on our 12-member commission.
Tree List for Planting in Pleasant Grove – Oct 2013
In 2013 the Mayor and the City Council asked the City Beautification Advisory Commission to compile a list of trees that would be a good choice for planting in Pleasant Grove. That list was completed and delivered to city staff members for their approval and revisions, then forwarded to the city council. It is available online as the PG City Tree Guide.
