The City Beautification Committee works to plan, organize, and execute a variety of beautification projects in the City of Harrisburg. The committee began in 1998 as it worked with PennDOT, PA Department of General Services, the City of Harrisburg and other community organizations to plant trees and shrubs in the median of Forster Street between Second and Seventh Streets. The committee continues to work with local organizations to further HYP’s efforts to make Harrisburg a more beautiful city.

The City Beautification Committee plans and executes the annual HYP Forster Street Clean-Up in the Spring, and also plans beautification events and educational experiences throughout the city. If you are interested in maintaining and improving the beauty of our city, please join us at an upcoming event or committee meeting! Contact the City Beautification Committee chairs at
