The Beautification Committee (OBC)
works on projects to help beautify the community. The committee oversees the installation of all the flower gardens in the City as well as all the hanging baskets and plantings on Main Street. They have also worked hard over the years to acquire many historic mining pieces and equipment that are displayed throughout the community to recognize Ouray mining heritage. The committee has also provided direction on signage, light poles, and benches on the public rights of way. The Beautification Committee also plays an important role in developing and implementing master plans for the City’s park system. The committee makes recommendations to the City Council on these many beautification projects as well as the use of dollars from the Beautification Fund. This fund is supported by a portion of the Lodging Occupation Tax and is used exclusively for projects that help beautify the community.
All committees have a set number of members with staggered terms and may also have residency requirements. Details for each committee can be found in Chapter 2 of the Ouray City Code
