Appearance Commission, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County

Purpose

The Community Appearance Commission of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County was formed in 1989 and includes citizens with a variety of career and life backgrounds. The primary goals of the Commission are to advise the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners and the Winston-Salem City Council about appearance-related issues and to positively influence public and private development. Major projects of the Community Appearance Commission (CAC) include the bi-annual Community Appearance Awards program, the annual Community Roots tree planting program, review of County and City-funded public facility construction projects from an appearance perspective, and advocacy of various other ordinances, public initiatives and measures to improve the attractiveness of the community.

Members and Non-Voting Staff Person(s)

The fifteen members of the CAC are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (7 members) and the City Council (8 members). Volunteer board members serve a maximum of two, consecutive three-year terms. A variety of backgrounds, skills and interests are appropriate for members, along with a common desire to help improve the appearance of the City and County. Appointees must reside within Forsyth County.
