The Adopt-a-Street program is a partnership between volunteers and the city to create a better living environment by reducing street-side litter and improving general appearance throughout the City. Over the last year, this program has been on hold due to COVID-19. Many residents have been asking about it and the city is happy to announce it’s back!


Participating groups agree to remove litter from an assigned area at least four times a year, over a minimum of one year. The City will provide volunteers with safety supplies such as gloves, vests, masks, bags, and training. The City also provides pick up and disposal of full bags placed at a designated location along the assigned section of street.

Applications and forms for the program can now be submitted online as well. If you have further inquiries you can send an email to
