Made up of volunteer representatives of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors appointed by the mayor of Jacksonville, the commission meets bi-monthly, with committees meeting separately on the months in between. The commission provides leadership and direction for the projects of Keep Jacksonville Beautiful and approves any expenditures necessary to make those projects possible. All meetings are open to the public.
