Dedicated To Making Auburn Hills Beautiful

Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Executive Assistant

What makes Auburn Hills beautiful?  I think our parks, the blooming trees Downtown, the manicured landscaping of our incredible businesses and our residents who take great pride in their homes all play a part in creating this truly beautiful city.

Our City Council understands the need to be intentional in beautification efforts and supports that idea through our Beautification Advisory Commission (BAC).

Our 2015 BAC Commission Members are a creative, diverse and dedicated group that works to encourage our residents and business to take an active role in the beautification of their properties.

The BAC’s annual Perennial Exchange is coming up on Saturday, May 16th.  This event invites our residents and friends from other communities to swap perennial plants to add new variety to their gardens for free.

In June, the BAC calls for nominations for the City’s Beautification Awards program.  Residents may nominate themselves, their neighbors and Auburn Hills businesses for a Beautification Award.  Winners receive an award and are invited to attend the Beautification Awards Dinner held at the Auburn Hills Community Center in the fall.

The group also participates in the Beautification Council of Southeastern Michigan (BCSEM), the City’s “Keep It Clean” Program, and works on special projects including the City’s lamppost banner program that adds a touch of outdoor color in every season.

The BAC encourages and welcomes active participation in all of their events and programs as they work to make Auburn Hills a beautiful place.
