Committees

Beautification Committee
The goal of the Beautification Committee is to establish a working partnership with city, civic groups, property owners associations, garden clubs to create garden districts and aesthetic improvements in key areas of the city. Our partnerships with both public and private entities have enabled successful sustainable landscape improvements for public spaces and medians throughout the city.

Recycling Committee
The Recycling Committee orks to encourage and promote recycling efforts in Little Rock among citizens, schools and businesses. It also seeks to develop partnerships in the areas of waste reduction with businesses and government (public/private) to educate and develop alternatives on to litter and waste.

Litter Prevention Committee
A litter free city is the goal of the Litter Prevention Committee. Projects of the committee include: Adopt-A-Street Program, Annual City Wide Cleanup, Cigarette Litter Prevention Program and the Annual Litter Survey/Index.
