Community Enhancement Committee Logo


Chairperson, Sue Callaway, Town Council Member



The CEC’s focus is on ideas, tasks and initiatives that will not only enhance the community as a whole, but also help increase individual homeowners’ property value and make South Bethany an even better place to live or visit – own or rent. The Committee works on initiatives that promote community enhancement and volunteerism such as the Adopt-A-Canal/Road End Program; Route 1 Median and Walkway improvement; York Beach Mall landscaping; the Ocean Drive Blueprint; and the development of community education flyers designed to help engage South Bethany homeowners in improving their properties and surroundings.
