The Adopt-A-Spot program focuses on litter cleanup in the City parks and right-of-ways. Groups make a four-year commitment to keep a particular area clean throughout the year. There is a kickoff Spring cleanup that occurs during the Keep America Beautiful (KAB) Great American Cleanup. The group members clean their spot a minimum of four (4) times during the Summer and more if needed.
The Adopt-A-Plot program focuses on the maintenance of the downtown streetscape area. Community groups and individuals make a year-long commitment to maintain a specific tree well planting area in the two-block downtown business district. The group makes a yearly commitment to keep the area clear of debris and weeds during the growing season. This program requires weekly maintenance to keep the downtown areas clean and litter-free for the many events held downtown. Their commitment is recognized with a nameplate at their particular spot.
