What is the Beautification Advisory Commission (BAC)?
The BAC promotes and publicizes beautification and environmental projects within the City of Auburn Hills. The BAC was established with three objectives in mind:
- To restore, preserve and enhance the beauty of the City of Auburn Hills.
- To encourage and assist active participation in all activities which pertain to the beautification and improvement of the City of Auburn Hills, such as home and community beautification; slum prevention; health and safety; fire prevention; civic pride and new development.
- To study, discuss and suggest to the City Council anti-blight and litter and beautification projects, and coordinating such projects by enlisting the active support of interested individuals, businesses and organizations.
Who we are.
The Beautification Advisory Commission meets every third Wednesday of the month at 6 pm in the City Council Conference Room located in City Hall.

What do we do?
The BAC works on three main programs each year:
The Auburn Hills Perennial Exchange event
The Perennial Exchange will be held this year on Saturday, May 18th on the patio of the Auburn Hills Community Center. The Community Center is located on the City Campus across from the Library and behind the tennis courts. Rain or shine, residents and friends from neighboring communities are invited to join together to trade their extra perennial plants with each other. Meet your neighbors, gather new plants to diversify your garden, enjoy complimentary sweet treats, take part in gardening gift raffle and have your gardening questions answered by a Master Gardner! This is a free event.
Keep It Clean City-Wide Event
The BAC is always looking for volunteers to help in our clean-up events! We welcome high school and college students, businesses, churches, retirees, families - anyone looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the community. Clean-up events last between one and two hours and all supplies are provided (except for gloves...please bring your own gloves!)
Beautification Awards Program
The Beautification Awards Program recognizes residents and businesses for outstanding landscaping and curb appeal. Look for your nomination form in the Spring/Summer edition of the Auburn Hills Newsletter and nominate a deserving property!
