Local volunteers of all ages came out to help beautify Cape Girardeau during Friends of the Parks Day in April 2012.
Cape Girardeau residents can help make a difference in the appearance of our city by joining the new Beautification Committee, recently started by the City Council at the May 7 meeting.

Ward 4 representative Loretta Schneider will help spearhead a multifaceted approach to improve our beautification efforts and reduce littering according to Mayor Harry Rediger, in a recent Southeast Missourian editorial.

Many local organizations work to keep Cape Girardeau beautiful, including area garden clubs and Southeast Missouri State University students and our Parks and Recreation Department. The Beautification Committee will help brainstorm and implement ways to increase and sustain current and future efforts for a clean Cape.

To apply for the Beautification Committee, download and return the application by mail or email to cityclerk@cityofcape.org. Call 573-339-6320 with questions.
