Program Description

The Beautification Program utilizes Bed, Board and Beverage (BBB) Tax revenues efficiently and effectively to create, enhance, and preserve the sense of place, the built and natural environment, of Flagstaff. Working with community groups and the Beautification and Public Art Commission, this program generates enhancement projects such as streetscapes; landscaping, including community gardens; enhanced traffic and transportation features; and other small and large community projects that provide community planning and aesthetics consistent with the high standards defined by Flagstaff's public policy.
