Beautification Projects



Beautification projects in DeKalb County are aimed at helping citizens dramatically improve their neighborhood's environment and aesthetics. Well maintained, clean communities discourage littering, illegal dumping, and crime. Clean communities also contribute to the overall health of our environment, increase property values and attract new businesses to the neighborhood.
