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. River Bright Spots have lovely gardens, interesting design, 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 allow the Committee to fund projects like the refurbishment of the stone wing walls at the corner of Detroit Rd. and Erie Rd.
