About Us

We Our

 A group of Black Mountain residents initiated the Black Mountain  Beautification Committee in 2000 with the goal of improving the  aesthetics of our community. As a non-profit organization, we exist  solely by the support of community volunteers, private donations and the  Town of Black Mountain of North Carolina.   

Our Mission Statement

The people of Black Mountain possess a cherished tradition of honoring the  natural beauty of the surrounding mountains, all the while seeking to  reflect that beauty on the streets and in the lives of its citizens.    

Our Vision

Our Committee strives to maintain and nurture the town  gardens, green areas and also to establish more natural gardens in  designated open areas. We work with town groups to realize  this vision of Black Mountain as a hospitable and scenic mountain  community.
