Do you want to participate in and contribute to the beautification of the Sheffield Neighborhood? Research has shown that community beautification programs result in increased property values, attract business investment, and improve the neighborhood reputation. Beauty is one of the top three factors in creating community loyalty. The Sheffield Neighborhood Association’s (“SNA”) Award-Winning Beautification program began in 2000. Since then, more than 225 trees were planted on the parkways throughout the neighborhood.
