In conjunction with the City Council, we are announcing the 3rd annual “Beautification Weekend” for the City of Vero Beach on Saturday and Sunday, February 11–12. Dedicating a weekend to beautification re-establishes a concept that first began in 1930 honoring Dr. Humiston’s efforts in beautifying the City through cleanup and planting projects. This year the Tree and Beautification and the City will be completing a beautification project to kick off this weekend. The Vero Beach Police Department property was selected as the project location and it will be receiving plenty of attention and new landscaping.
“We are encouraging residents to clean up their yard, plant a tree, trim a hedge, plant flowers, paint a mailbox, mend a fence, or engage in other beautification activities over that weekend and motivate others to take similar actions. Work as a team on a larger project, or help a friend or family member with an overdue task. Every little bit makes a big difference,” said Chris Runge, Chairman of the Vero Beach Tree & Beautification Commission.
Runge added, “Taking actions to beautify this City is to everyone’s benefit; making Vero Beach an even more beautiful and attractive place to live!”
