The Bright Spot program is a way to recognize residents who spend extra time and effort to enhance their property and Rocky River as a community. It is not a competition.  Bright Spots have lovely gardens, interesting designs, and quality maintenance. As in the past, the focus was on front yards and curb appeal so that volunteers did not have to go on private property during the review process.  Limited volunteer resources dictated that we focus on only one residential category this year, which was single family homes. We look forward to expanding in future years with more members. Please join us!


The Rocky River Beautification Committee’s mission is focused on projects and recreational activities that foster community involvement to improve the appearance of the city. The Committee strives to enhance the quality of life in Rocky River. Fundraisers like Light Up River allowed the Committee to refurbish the stone wing walls at the corner of Detroit Road and Erie Road last year. One of the current projects is focused on upgrading the City of Rocky River sign and landscaping at the corner of Hilliard Boulevard and Wagar Road.
