Appearance Commission | Tree Board
The City of Graham Appearance Commission is an advisory board to the City Council. The Commission is charged with promoting, planning, advising and encouraging the citizens of Graham to help beautify the community. The Appearance Commission works to add a new project each year that will result in an improvement to the city, raise awareness within the Graham community and encourage hands-on participation of local service organizations, church groups, schools, business owners and residents.
The Appearance Commission recognizes residents and business owners alike for improving the community through the Residential and Business Beautification Awards. The Appearance Commission is also responsible for Business Beautification Grants, which provides matching funding for business owners city-wide, to make exterior renovations to their property. Appearance Commission members coordinate a bi-annual litter sweep. The newest program is the Graham AC Rocks! scavenger hunt in which rocks painted by the community are hidden around Graham for citizens to find, enjoy, and share on social media.
Appearance Commission | Tree Board meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Graham Municipal Building, 201 South Main Street. All meetings are open to the public.
