What is the Beautification Committee?
Town Council set a goal to beautify the Town of Stettler in 1995. A committee of local residents, town staff and Councillors was put together to ensure that the community had input. The new “Heartland Beautification Committee” soon began producing attractive and sustainable aspects in the town such as the mural on the water reservoir, hanging baskets, banners, the recycling program and Memorial Tree Park. All of these projects have been done on a reasonable budget with volunteer help and donations.
In 1998, the Committee joined the increasingly popular “Communities in Bloom” competition as a tool to get local businesses and residents thinking about how they can help beautify Stettler. The Heartland Beautification Committee has been highly complimented on their improvements to Stettler by the Provincial and National Judges.
The Committee is consists of sub-committees, each of which focus on different areas of beautification. They are Environmental Action, Stettler Blooms, Heritage Conservation, Tidiness and Parks & Trees.
A major goal for the future of the Committee is to engage the younger generation so that the improvements done will have value for young residents of Stettler who are becoming engaged with in their town and will be here for many years to come.
