Mission Statement
The CBA is a non-profit organization of its citizens who are dedicated to preserving historical landmarks, enhancing aesthetic qualities of the community and fostering pride in our city.

In 2005, we formed a non-profit, 501(c)(3), new organization with the goal of making Chisholm a better place to live.  We have undertaken many projects including coordinating a citywide clean up, restoration of the curling club and the exterior of the garment factory, planted trees downtown, placed welcoming signage on all city entrances and annually paint homes of needy citizens.  These projects were funded by grants and volunteer labor.

2020 Board of Directors

Meetings are the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 PM at the Chisholm Baptist Church Library.  Guests as well as new members are welcome.

Chisholm Beautification Association members are individuals who volunteer and devote their time to assess the needs of the City, relative to our mission, prioritize needs and put in the effort to “make things happen”.  There has never been a group such as the CBA, with imagination and vigor that has been a watchdog on keeping our city beautiful with projects that set us apart from the other communities.  View our projects pages and see the many improvements that have been made to combat community deterioration.
