Planning Services: Keep Shelby Beautiful Commission (ksbc)
PURPOSE & POWERS
KEEP SHELBY BEAUTIFUL COMMISSION, formerly known as Shelby Appearance Commission (SAC), was established in January 1972 to promote the general welfare of the citizens of the City of Shelby by making careful study of the visual problems and needs of the municipality within its area of zoning jurisdiction and make plans to carry out programs that enhance and improve the visual quality and aesthetic characteristics of the City. In March 2003, Keep Shelby Beautiful (KSB), advisory council to the Shelby Appearance Commission was formed and became a certified affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. KSB’s mission was to empower individuals to take responsibility for enhancing the quality of life for Shelby’s citizens through litter prevention, reduction in waste, beautification and education.
After several years of working separately, the Shelby Appearance Commission and Keep Shelby Beautiful merged in January 2010. The purpose of the merger was to strengthen beautification efforts designed to enhance and improve the quality of life in Shelby.
It is the intent of the KSB_Bylaws to affirm this merger and to affirm the partnership between Keep Shelby Beautiful and the national Keep America Beautiful organization as a municipal affiliate.
Keep Shelby Beautiful (KSB) is a fifteen member advisory board to the City Council of Shelby, North Carolina. Since 2003, KSB has been an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful (KAB). As an affiliate, KSB enjoys learning from and sharing information with almost 600 KAB affiliates across America. KSB works with volunteers, schools, civic clubs, local businesses, and City staff to educate the Shelby community on programs for litter prevention, recycling, and beautification. The mission is to empower individuals to take responsibility for improving the quality of life in the community by the use of education, technology, local ordinances, and effective enforcement to “KEEP SHELBY BEAUTIFUL”!
