History of KEPB

In July 1977, the organization Keep East Point Beautiful (KEPB), formerly known as East Point Clean Community System, Inc was officially created by City Council at its July meeting. Keep East Point Beautiful changed their name when the national organization Keep America Beautiful (KAB) asked that affiliates do so to align themselves nationally.

Members of a task force lead by Mr. Jake Cooper attended a Keep America Beautiful training class. The group brought back detailed information, shared it with the council and the program was approved to begin its task. Mr. Cooper served as KEPB's first Chairman of the organization.
