Town Government &


Committees: Beautification Commission

2012 Annual Report

The Hingham Beautification Commission completed its 8th work season in early December when its members decorated the South Street planters with hand-cut greens prior to the Christmas in the Square celebration.

All summer long, eight dedicated members cared for numerous garden sites and planters around town adding beauty and color to the streetscape. In its 8th year, the HBC remains strong in its mission.

Currently, it maintains ten garden sites, most with multiple planting beds, and several street containers. This, in spite of many challenges, including weather, traffic damage and financial. Orchestrating the maintenance is highly dependent on the invaluable assistance of the Department of Public Works for which we are very grateful.

The Town has established the Hingham Beautification Commission "Gift Account" to which donations can be made by local businesses and individuals who wish to support this effort. It is administered through the office of the Town Treasurer.
