Parks and Recreation : keep shelby beautiful

In March, 2003, Keep Shelby Beautiful was officially recognized as an affiliate of the 50 year old Keep America Beautiful organization. In December 2003 the affiliate received the President's Circle award at the National Convention in Washington D.C.

The Shelby Appearance Commission worked for several months with KAB trainers to assess the litter and solid waste situation and develop a board of directors and begin a local organization.

Priorities are beautification, litter control, solid waste and curbside trash reduction, education about what can be done to improve our environment, and graffiti.
