Overview

Our Mission: To positively impact the beauty of the community and enhance cultural opportunities for the Village of Montgomery through plantings, gardens, enhancement of natural habitats, and encouragement of the arts through volunteer efforts.

Village of Montgomery businesses and residents are invited to participate in the "Business Planter Program", and each April residents receive forms for the "Adopt-a-Flower-Box" program to sponsor flower boxes on the Mill Street bridge. Additional participants are always welcome.

The Beautification Committee works on a variety of Village projects. Past projects have included the blue bird attractions, enhancement of Village flower beds and updating Village pole banners. The Committee also sponsors the summer floral, Halloween and Holiday display contests.

Committee Adviser and Liaison: Director of Public Works with assistance from the Village Arborist.

All meetings are open to the public. Meetings are generally held at the Village Hall on the second Wednesday of each month
at 6:00 pm.
