Does your neighborhood group host or participate in neighborhood clean-ups?

Livable Neighborhoods encourages you to adopt-a-spot! It’s a great way to keep our community litter-free and show that someone cares for a space. (You’ll even get to put a cool sign for your neighborhood group placed there).

See more information about the Adopt-A-Spot program here.
