New slogan for the Beautification Committee: Ask not what your city can do for you, ask what you can do for your city......
I think this is an example of what 'a' Committee is trying 'to do for your city'. The Committee and City have to communicate for any project success to result. I suggest to the Committee, select a couple of projects to focus on as 'pilots'; to the City, provide resources (i.g. access to street/utility maps, staff) and adjust the City work plan for the pilot project areas to include the Committee's suggestions. In other words, instead of managing landscape maintenance as currently done, do it in a way that supports the pilot project goal. From these experince a larger scoped project can result.
“We have limited resources. It’s more important to have them do their jobs than to meet with the committee,” Pinter told them.
Though not evident by his reported comment, working with the community is part of Mr. Pinter's and crew's job.
