We Envision A Community in Which Every Neighborhood Is A Clean, Green, & Beautiful Place To Live.

About

In 1988, a stay-at-home mom, later turned Texas Representative Dianne White Delisi, worked with the Temple Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee members to embark upon a mission to have Temple, Texas, designated as the State’s official Wildflower Capital. After Temple received the recognition in 1989, the committee went to work trying to outline a plan to make Temple an environmentally safe and aesthetically pleasing community. The effort made by this dedicated committee became such a passion for many of the members that the large Chamber task force was transformed into a sperate organization called Keep Temple Beautiful, Inc. 

Today, Keep Temple Beautiful, Inc., is still a fully functioning 501(c)3 non-profit with an active volunteer board. While the main goals of environmental safety and beautification projects still remain high priorities, Keep Temple Beautiful, Inc., has partnered with the City of Temple to add an annual household hazardous waste materials clean up, a multitude of educational events, and a beautiful gateway for the city at the intersection of I-35 and Adams Avenue/Central Avenue. The spirit of Dianne White Delisi continues to live on in the dedicated hearts of the KTB Board and the citizens of Temple.

The I-35 Gateway is one project KTB partnered with the city to bring forth. The project will beautify the area with landscaping, signage, & sculptures to create an alluring gateway welcoming travelers to our city.
