The City of Alexandria’s Adopt-A-Street Program, funded in part by a grant from Keep Louisiana Beautiful, is designed to engage the local community in keeping their neighborhoods clean.
We are currently targeting half-mile sections of streets in each of the City’s five City Council districts. The goal is to recruit a minimum of 10 organizations or individuals who commit to cleaning the street sections identified at least four times per year, with two of the dates being citywide cleanup days. Supporting groups may include neighborhood watch groups, civic clubs, school groups, Boy and Girl Scout units, local businesses, churches and other community groups as well as individuals or families.
In exchange for the supporter’s commitment, the City will provide road signs designating the street as adopted by the organization or the individual. In addition, the City will provide each organization or individual with up to 10 cleanup kits which will include yellow safety vests, grabber hand tools, trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer, a face mask, and a reusable tote bag for the supplies. In addition, the City will provide trailers and other volunteer support on the designated citywide cleanup days.
To get started and adopt a street, please download the Program Guide and other required documents. Completed documents should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, email email@example.com or call 318-441-6032.
