Beautification Committee

Duties:

This committee was officially created and most instrumental in early 2000, after much discussion about the vision that was seen for improvements in the Town of Enfield. The primary focus for the Committee was to build a sense of community among Enfielders and develop a unique community that is visible to visitors.

In 2002, six street lights were installed in the center of the Town, on Enfield Main Road, which provided safety lighting for the hamlet. Soon after the lights were fully installed, planters, flags, and holiday decorations were purchased to be hung at various times of the year. Wooden planters and shrubs were planted at the base of each light pole.
In 2007, the large, hand carved “Welcome to Enfield” signs were placed at each end of the Hamlet of Enfield. Gardens are also surrounding these two signs, which are maintained by the Committee. Committee members are all volunteers, and their responsibilities include:

Coordinate and schedule the various items (banners, lights, etc…) to display on the street light poles. Flags will be hung by Memorial Day weekend and not removed until after Veterans Day; and holiday lights will be hung soon after Thanksgiving.

Coordinate maintenance of the various Town flower beds. The beds are located at each street light (6), at each “Welcome to Enfield” sign (1), and one in front of each building – Community Building and Town Hall.

Order new supplies, plants, etc…, such as new banners, lights, and various plants for the Town gardens.

Provide an annual report to the Town Board, indicating the various items available for display, location of gardens, major plantings (ie. memorial trees) financial report (grant monies received, etc…), approximate number of hours volunteered towards these projects, etc… A list of capital equipment should be maintained by the Committee Chair, with approximate date of purchase (ie. street lights, signs, etc…), and submitted with the annual report.

This Committee outline was originally adopted in December, 2009.
