Beautification Strategy Update

Beautification is the process of making visual improvements to Vaughan through the planting of flowers, ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs in beds, planters and hanging baskets.

The City of Vaughan’s Beautification Strategy was created and approved in 2016 and implemented in 2017. The strategy provides guidance on where and how the City should focus its beautification efforts. The current strategy includes a classification system with four service levels – Premium, Enhanced, Standard and Basic – and describes how these service levels are applied to flower beds, planters and hanging baskets throughout the city. The strategy also provides guidance on which plants the City should use and standards for how often plantings will be maintained.

The City is currently in the process of updating this strategy and wants your feedback to ensure the new strategy meets the community’s needs.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Beautification is the process of making visual improvements to a City through the placement of flowers, ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs in beds, planters, hanging baskets.

     The City is undertaking a comprehensive review of its Beautification Strategy to ensure it still meets the community’s needs. Public engagement is vital to the development and success of this strategy and the feedback collected through this survey will help the City reassess current service levels for its horticultural assets (e.g. flower beds, planters, trees).

    The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will be available until Sunday, April 18. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Colin Johnston, Manager of Contract Services and Special Projects/Interim Manager of Urban Forestry at beautificationsurvey@vaughan.ca
