|Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, in partnership with the City of Cincinnati Department of Public Services, invites you to Adopt-a-Spot!
You are encouraged to take part in this exciting and innovative program by "adopting" a portion of your neighborhood. From business districts to your own block, beautification and maintenance of your own "Spot" can only benefit your community.
Who: Any individual or organized group or business may participate in the Adopt-a-Spot program. Up to three individuals, organizations or businesses can adopt an area together.
What: Adopt-a-Spot is a clean-up/beautification program that encourages residents to work on improving their neighborhoods by cleaning littered curbs, sidewalks, and vacant lots, cutting grass and high weeds, and planting flowers. We also encourage "adopters" to remove signs from unity poles. Participants can also report graffiti and paint boarded up buildings. You are limited only by your imagination!
Why: To encourage residents and businesses in the City of Cincinnati to initiate beautification and litter prevention projects in communities to ensure a better quality of life.
When: At least once a month on the entire adopted "spot" (if a street, both sides of the street), designated by the participating individual or organization. The individual or group is required to adopt for a three-year period. "Adopters" shall be required to pick-up litter if the appearance of the adopted section becomes objectionable.
Where: All Adopt-a-Spot projects must be on public property or in the public right-of-way, including traffic islands, city-owned vacant lots, or the right-of-way between the curb and the sidewalk.
How: Simply complete and return the Adopt-A-Spot form ( Click Here for Form). Then, organize your group and start cleaning and beautifying!
