The Clifton Advisory Beautification Committee is made up of volunteer Clifton, NJ residents appointed by the Mayor and City Council, whose mission is to seek out, initiate and encourage civic beautification projects.
In it's 30+ year history, this has included seeking grant funding for tree and flower plantings in City Parks, on the City Hall Complex, and other locations across the City. In addition, the Committee has helped to recognize home owners and businesses who have made an exceptional effort to help beautify Clifton at their residential and commercial properties.
On November 16th the first commemorative plaques to honor volunteers were installed in the Tribute Garden at City Hall. Commemorative Plaques can be purchased for a $150 donation to honor a Clifton volunteer. The first plaques honored Angela Barat, former Mayor Gloria Kolodziej, Keith Oakley and Fran Warren.

On November 11th, members of the Beautification committee and Clifton DPW planted perennials in the City Hall complex. The perennials were received from the City Green Dig In! Grant awarded to the Beautification committee and included over 45 plants. The perennials were planted in the Sculpture Park and the volunteer Tribute Garden with the help of Clifton's DPW staff.
At the November 8th City Council meeting the annual Beautification awards were presented, two Clifton businesses received an award. The Business Beautification Awards recognize businesses making an exceptional effort to beautify and enhance their business property. This years winners were The Barrow House and Roma Cafe.
At the Beautification Committee's August monthly meeting committee members donated school supplies to the Power of One's annual Back2School Outreach program.
