Keep Jacksonville Beautiful (KJB)
The Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Commission is our local, grassroots affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the nation's largest volunteer-based community action and education organization. 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.
To support community beautification, enhance community pride and improve the quality of life in Jacksonville through provision of outreach, educational activities and programming. Check out the Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Commission Calendar of Annual Projects & Events.
