City Beautification Committee

The City Beautification Committee is responsible for a variety of beautification projects, both downtown and across Troy. The Beautification Committee was started as a garden club in 1969, and officially established as a City Committee under Chapter 1103 of the Troy City Code in 1974. Some of those projects include:

  • Flower plantings around downtown Troy
  • Management of the planters and the hanging baskets on utility poles around the Public Square
  • Christmas decorations around the square and levee (with support from the Troy Foundation)
  • Sponsorship of an Arbor Day program
  • Memorial trees and plaques
  • Tree management around the Public Square
  • Conducting tree identification and tagging in City parks
  • Presenting “Green Thumb” and “Merit” awards
  • Encouraging organizations and citizens to beautify properties in Troy

Governing Law: Chapter 1103 of the Troy Codified Ordinances.

Membership: The Beautification Committee is comprised of thirteen members. A majority of the members are residents of the City, but members may also be residents of either Concord or Staunton Townships in Miami County, Ohio. Members serve for two-year terms.

Appointment: Members are appointed by Mayor, approved by Council.

Meeting schedule: The Beautification Committee meets on the second Monday of each month at 4 p.m. in the City Hall Basement Conference Room.
