Community Beautification

The primary goal of our Community Beautification program is to increase the perception of Ithaca and Tompkins County as an outstandingly beautiful community that is in sync with seasonal rhythms, that is easy for visitors to navigate, that is beautiful to live in and a joy to visit through the installation and maintenance of abundant plantings, particularly in areas where tourists go.
