Lake Granbury Area Beautification Council

Just in time for the holidays, the Lake Granbury Area Beautification Council (LGABC) has come up with a new way to make the community an even more lovely place—thousands of lights in the smaller trees around the Historic Courthouse Square. They complement LGBC’s giant lighted Christmas trees that adorn each corner of the Square.

The LGABC board’s current president is Janet Lell. “I love this community,” said Lell. The retired English teacher saw things that could be improved and became personally involved. “We have great sponsorship participation from local businesses. I think they realize that when Granbury is more attractive looking, we all benefit from the shared efforts.” 

On projects involving the City of Granbury, during the planning process the LGABC works the City staff to make sure rules and codes are followed. “It has been great to partner with the Lake Granbury Area Beautification Council. Not only do they have great ideas, but are open to new ideas and projects that the City suggests,” said City Manager Chris Coffman.

LGABC’s sole fundraiser is the annual Jewel Ball. They carefully spend those resources, often having a bidding process on projects.    

For the last 39 years, LGABC has been raising money to spend on the requests residents make to beautify the area. That has included fountains, benches and bridges in parks, landscaping along public roads and planters around the Square.   

The City appreciates LGABC’s work, especially this new holiday lighting addition.
