Keep Friendswood Beautiful (KFB)

The beautification group was originally started in 1973 as the Civic Beautification Committee, later changed to the Community Appearance Board in 1977, and is now known as Keep Friendswood Beautiful. 

Keep Friendswood Beautiful (KFB) is a city board made up of 20 volunteers dedicated to enhance the aesthetic appearance of Friendswood and to encourage residents to take an active role in maintaining that appearance. Awarded the Governor’s Community Achievement Award of $210,000 in 2015, KFB used the money to improve the 518 medians with new landscaping under the direction of the Texas Department of Transportation. 

Responsibilities

KFB directs and coordinates management and planning of projects and education of the community, recommends budget and project priorities to City Council, seeks grants for funding opportunities, makes suggestions for conserving and protecting natural resources, and performs such other duties as the City Council may reasonably request.
