Triangle J Council of Governments' Regional Appearance Committee works in many areas to heighten awareness of the economic, environmental and quality of life benefits generated by good community appearance to individual communities and the region as a whole. The committee:
- produces handbooks, videos and other materials, and conducts workshops and conferences on appearance issues;
- applies for grants for individual community projects or projects to reach a broader group;
- addresses issues such as landscaping, sign ordinances, open space preservation, and downtown revitalization; and
- administers the Wake County Capital Trees Program.
The Regional Appearance Committee, currently co-chaired by Benson Kirkman and Denny Murphy, generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month beginning at 9:30 a.m.
