Beautification and Recreation

Hesperia Beautification Committee
Hesperia Beautification Committee is a non-profit organization. The Committee is comprised of volunteers whose efforts are geared toward beautifying our Village. The goals of the Committee include retaining our small town charm and creating a unique environment which will help us create an attractive downtown business climate. The Committee focuses on downtown as well as the parks throughout the Village. They are responsible for planning and carrying out the details required in connection with the planting of flowers in spring; choosing hanging baskets and planters. Committee members are pursuing the long-held goal of making the Village of Hesperia a more beautiful place to live. For more information, see the Hesperia Beautification Committee letter and brochure.
