Adopt-A-Street

The City of Grants Pass is encouraging local businesses, civic groups, youth organizations, academic institutions, families, and individuals to keep our community walkways clean and beautiful by participating in the Adopt-A-Street Program.  The Adopt-A-Street Program is a great way to give back to your community and enjoy the benefits of a cleaner Grants Pass.  

This Public Works Program gives citizens the opportunity to take ownership of a street of their choice (as long as it is a City street), organize regular litter pickups and contribute to a cleaner, healthier Grants Pass.  Picking up refuse along our City streets will keep it out of the stormwater system, out of the creeks and rivers ensuring our waterways are maintained at an optimum level.  

Adopt-A-Street members participate in cleanup efforts at their adopted sites at least quarterly (four times a year). Cleanups are scheduled by each group/individual at their convenience.  And in exchange for a two year commitment of organizing litter pickup, a customized sign will be installed at each end of your adopted street to announce the name of your group and to honor your community service.  

The City of Grants Pass will supply safety vests, trash bags and safety guidelines for the participants.
