The Beautification Advisory Board is established in Section 82-26 of the Code of Ordinances and consists of six members of good moral character who are residents of the city. The terms of the members are for staggered three (3) years and meeting monthly on the fourth Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Commission Chambers of City Hall. The powers and duties of the Beautification Board include 1) continually study and make recommendations to the City Commission, supported by plats and sketches when appropriate, regarding plantings and other related ways to beautify city-owned or controlled property and rights-of-way and new construction on private property classified as nonresidential; 2) perform such other duties with reference to beautification, not inconsistent with the Charter, as the City Commission may require. There is no special education or training to hold a position on this board.
