The Community Beautification Program (CBP) provides funding to Marysville neighborhoods or downtown businesses that want to work together to beautify their neighborhoods or area. Communities can apply for grant funding of up to $7,500 to complete community landscaping efforts, neighborhood cleanup of common or publicly visible areas, or other projects that help enhance the quality of life for the community. Businesses can apply for funding for exterior improvements such as facade, sign or other beautification projects. Applicants that have previously received CBP funds can apply for funding up to $5,000.
