Naglee Park Beautification Committee
The Naglee Park Beautification Committee is dedicated to improving and maintaining the beauty of Naglee Park's public spaces through the work of neighborhood volunteers. Meetings are held once a month (our motto: never more than an hour), and business is conducted by email via a Yahoo! list. Twice a year, we have pot-luck dinners.
Funds for the Beautification Committee are provided through the CCA and donations. To donate to the Beautification Committee or specifically to one of our ongoing projects, make a check payable to CCA. In the Notes line, write Beautification and, if your donation is for a specific project, the project name. For example, Beautification, Trees. Send your check to:
P.O. Box 90038
San Jose, CA 95109-3038
Currently, the Beautification Committee manages several projects, which are described below. Volunteers are welcome. To volunteer or learn more about a project, contact the Project Coordinator.

New projects are welcome too! Identify a beautification project; outline activities, dates, and budget items; then present your plan to the Beautification Committee for discussion and approval.
The Beautification Committee works with Our City Forest (www.ourcityforest.org) to plant and maintain parking strip/street trees. CCA uses Beautification funds to run a neighborhood street tree maintenance grant program in conjunction with a certified, commercial arborist company. In addition, members of Beautification attend meetings with the City of San Jose Redevelopment Agency and the City Arborist to protect street trees and large yard trees from unnecessary destruction or removal.

Once a year, the Beautification Committee distributes bulbs from San Jose Beautiful for planting in public spaces: medians, parking strips, and parks.

Using Beautification funds and volunteers, WSPG planted trees, bushes, perennials and wildflowers in the northwest corner of William Street Park. WSPG weeds, mulches, and waters the planting throughout the year.
