The Beautification and Public Art Commission consists of seven citizens, and recommends expenditures from the BBB beautification fund and public art portion of arts and science fund.

There are currently two expiring seats and one seat open due to a resignation. It is important to fill vacancies on Boards and Commissions quickly to allow the Commission to continue meeting on a regular basis.

  • Anthony Garcia (current commissioner)
  • Carla McCord (current commissioner)
