Overview

The Community Beautification Program was established in August 2002 with funding from the Hotel Room Tax Fund, an additional 5% tax paid by guests at Tompkins County hotels, motels and B&B;'s to fund local tourism initiatives.

The goal of the Beautification Program is to improve the visual and aesthetic appearance of our communities, particularly on the main roads and gateways into the county, main streets of rural towns and villages, and in downtown Ithaca.

The Beautification Brigade works on plantings throughout the city of Ithaca, focusing on high-visibility areas like the Ithaca Commons and traffic medians on main roads. Grants are awarded to the rural communities for beautification projects at the county gateways and in towns and villages.

Want to volunteer with the Beautification Brigade and help maintain the flower plantings in Ithaca?

Training sessions for 2010 will be held on (2) Tuesdays, March 23 & 30, 6:00-8:30 pm at the Cooperative Extension Education Center. Visit our "Classes" link above, or contact Program Manager Dan Klein at 272-2292 x 123 or dek22@cornell.edu for a information and a volunteer application.
