Beautification Committee

Committee Charter & Goals

The goal of the committee is to promote beautification throughout the city of American Fork and to be an example to our neighboring communities. We are also greatly involved with foresting the city with trees. Through our committee's efforts the City of AF has become a member of the Tree City USA organization and we take great pleasure in striving to maintain this highly prestigious status.

We are an active committee with many hard working and committed members. We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers. As a member, the time commitment per month is minimal and we would greatly appreciate any input pertaining to beautification the citizens of AF could render in our city's behalf.

Each July homes are selected to be a part of the “Steel Days Garden Tour”. This is an annual event that has been taking place since 2011. Each month from May thru October, from all parts of the city, homes are selected by committee members or citizens to be a “Yard of the Month”. Signs are posted and certificates awarded. It’s evident that many hours of hard work go in to beautifying homes and gardens. We feel that this spotlight will help others throughout the community to become more aware of the beauty of our surroundings and the possibilities which exist.

Meeting Schedule

WHEN: Every Third Wednesday of the month at approximately 6PM, from January-October.

WHERE: We are meeting at City Hall currently, in May we will begin meeting at city parks. 

WHO: Public is always invited to attend 

WHAT: At our meetings we discuss our upcoming events and discuss ways in which to help beautify our community in order to bring people closer together. We are always open to the suggestions of the community.

We love our beautiful city. The American Fork Beautification and Shade Tree Committee is here to educate, inform and as a resource for you. Our committee is involved in celebrating Yards of the Month, the July Garden Tour, Spring and Fall Library Classes, Arbor Day plantings, citywide clean up, and other sponsored activities. 

 For the most updated location for meetings, to nominate a home for Yard of the Month, and with any questions or concerns, we invite you to join our Facebook Group, American Fork Gardening and Beautification. You can also contact Kris Bromley, who handles committee communications here at
