Triangle J Council of Governments' Regional Appearance Committee worked in many areas to heighten awareness of the economic, environmental and quality of life benefits generated by good community appearance to individual communities and the region as a whole. The committee:
- produced handbooks, videos and other materials, and conducted workshops and conferences on appearance issues;
- applied for grants for individual community projects or projects to reach a broader group;
- addressed issues such as landscaping, sign ordinances, open space preservation, and downtown revitalization; and
- administered the Wake County Capital Trees Program.
