HBF raises funds in order to transform public spaces such as empty lots, traffic islands, and school entrances into landscaped areas that enhance the beauty of Hillsborough. Sites slated for improvement are often selected based upon requests from residents. HBF evaluates the site, creates a plan, and with Board approval, manages the work with a landscaping consultant. Once projects have been completed, the Maintenance Committee oversees the ongoing upkeep and preservation of the site. HBF strives to provide improvements in all geographical areas of Town.
