The Beautification Advisory Commission (BAC) was established with three objectives in mind:
To restore, preserve and enhance the beauty of the City of Auburn Hills.
To encourage and assist active participation in all activities which pertain to the beautification and improvement of the City of Auburn Hills, such as home and community beautification; slum prevention; health and safety; fire prevention; civic pride and new development.
To study, discuss and suggest to the City Council anti-blight and litter and beautification projects, and coordinating such projects by enlisting the active support of interested individuals, businesses and organizations.
The BAC works on three main programs each year - The Auburn Hills Perennial Exchange event, Keep-It-Clean City Clean-Up Events and the Beautification Awards Program
The Perennial Exchange will be held this year on Saturday, May 19th at the Auburn Hills Community Center. Please note this is a new location! Rain or shine, residents and friends from neighboring communities are invited to join together to trade their extra perennial plants with each other. Meet your neighbors, gather new plants to diversify your garden, enjoy refreshments and get your gardening questions answered by a Master Gardner! This is a free event.
Keep It Clean
The BAC is always looking for volunteers to help in our clean-up events! We welcome high school and college students, businesses, churches, retirees, families - anyone looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the community. Clean-up events last between one and two hours and all supplies are provided (accept for gloves...please bring your own gloves!)
The Beautification Awards Program recognizes residents and businesses for outstanding landscaping and curb appeal. Look for your nomination form in the Spring/Summer edition of the Auburn Hills Newsletter and nominate a deserving property!
For more information on these programs and events, or if you are interested in the open position available on the Beautification Advisory Commission, please contact Elizabeth Brennan at 248.364.6946 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2018, BAC meetings will be held on February 21, April 18, May 16, July 18, August 15, September 19 and October 17 at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Conference Room at 1827 N. Squirrel Road.
