Negaunee Beautification Committee (NBC)


Our motto is "Together we will grow." The NBC's mission is to enhance the appearance and environment of the Negaunee City parks and we provide opportunities for people looking to volunteer. The committee meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month with most meetings taking place at a work bee site.

Whatever your talents or services are - preparing and planting flower gardens, landscaping, posters and publicity or lending a hand with the Pioneer Days float - your help would be appreciated! All volunteers are welcome whether it's one hour, one evening or one project - all help makes a difference. Future project ideas include:

  • Landscaping
  • Community gardens
  • Iron ore car planters

The NBC is also pleased to offer the opportunity to contribute the the beauty and enjoynment of our parks by adopting a park bench. This program not only enhances the enjoyment of a park, but also allows for recognition of your organization, business or someone special in a unique and lasting manner. The NBC will acknowledge your adoption with a 4" x 6" engraved plaque on your bench. Each plaque will allow for three lines of text with up to 30 characters per line. The cost is $300.00. Contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 475-7900 if you have questions. Applications along with the City's Adopt-a-Bench policies can be obtained through the Parks & Recreation Department or downloaded HERE.
