Committee Charter & Goals
The goal of the committee is to promote beautification throughout the City and to be an example to neighboring communities. The committee is also greatly involved with adding City trees. Through the committee's efforts, the City of American Fork has become a member of the prestigious Tree City USA organization.

The time commitment of the beautification committee per month is minimal, and volunteers and committee members are always wanted. If you're interested in getting involved, please attend one the meetings .
