Adopt a Block

The Adopt a Block program is a collaborative effort between officers, citizens, and other city agencies. The Adopt a Block Project offers groups and individuals an opportunity to adopt an area of their choice, or we can provide a list of areas to choose from. You or your organization can make a valuable contribution to your neighborhood by volunteering a minimal amount of time to perform such duties as:

  • Graffiti Removal
  • Litter pick-up
  • Weed Abatement
