The Beautification Office encompasses a varied group of programs ranging from regulatory control and oversight of outdoor advertising, to preserving, sustaining and enhancing the beauty of our Tennessee landscape.
The Outdoor Advertising Control, Vegetation Control, and Junkyard Control programs are regulatory in nature and sanctioned by statute. The Litter Grant Program allocates funding for all 95 Tennessee counties for litter abatement and litter prevention education.
The Adopt-A-Highway, Scenic Highways, and Gateways to Tennessee programs advocate environmental stewardship through partnerships and networking with community groups, individuals, civic groups, non-profits, government agencies, and businesses. These programs feature opportunities for citizens to participate in the preservation of scenic vistas, building and maintaining of new landscapes, and roadside litter pickup activities.
“Keep Tennessee Beautiful” is more than a phrase. It involves the dedication and effort of everyone to ensure the roadside beauty found in Tennessee remains for the enjoyment of future generations.
