Committee Description
The Commission possesses only the powers of recommendation and persuasion to accomplish its goal of enhancing and improving the visual quality and aesthetic characteristics of the city. The Community Appearance Commission works in partnership with the Planning Board by adding specific knowledge and experience in the area of aesthetics. The Commission serves as a catalyst that encourages community involvement in improving the visual aspects of our environment and preserving its natural beauty.
