In October 1976, the City Beautiful Commission was created by Little Rock City Code 15-26,27. Members of the City Beautiful Commission are appointed by the Little Rock City Board of Directors. The goal of the commission is 'to raise the level of community expectation for the quality of its environment. The duties of the commission are: to review requests for variance to the landscape ordinance; to promote public interest in the general improvement of the appearance of the City of Little Rock; to provide environmental policy direction and guidance to the Board of Directors; and to establish, subject to the approval from the Little Rock City Board of Directors, regulations of aesthetic quality for public and private lands and improvements.
The Commission reviews requests for variances to the Landscape Ordinance. The application must be filed with staff at 723 West Markham Street by the filing date in order to be heard by the Commission. A special website has been developed for the current and future activities of the Commission.
Useful Ordinances for applications:
The City Beautiful meets the first Thursday of Each Month - 11:30 AM in the Sister Cities Conference Room at Little Rock City Hall, 500 West Markham Street, 2nd Floor.
