As part of the 5-year Stabilization, Occupation, and Revitalization (SOAR) plan to confront some of Wyandotte County's most pervasive challenges in the appearance, communication, and safety of neighborhoods, the Unified Government is excited to announce the Adopt-A-Spot WyCo program.

The Adopt-A-Spot program is voluntary and designed for civic-minded groups, businesses, and organizations with an interest in keeping Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, and Kansas City, Kansas litter-free.  The Adopt-A-Spot program is open to families, youth organizations, civic groups, non-profits, churches, schools, social organizations, retiree organizations, and city, county, or state agencies.

"Adopt-A-Spot WyCo is a great way for community members to help beautify parks, portions of streets, & Land Bank properties, and be recognized for their hard work," said Logan Masenthin, SOAR Program Coordinator.  In recognition of their hard work, program sponsors will receive an on-site Adopt-A-Spot sign with their organization, business, or group name printed on it after performing at least three cleanup events during a two-year period.

Adopt-A-Spot WyCo is open to everyone on a first-come, first-served basis.  At this time, 34 parks, 15 portions of streets, and 66 Land Bank properties are eligible for adoption.  The program, which will kick-off officially in September 2019, is accepting location reservations now.  To learn more and check out the list of adoptable spots, visit the Adopt-A-Spot WyCo page at wycokck.org/SOAR/Adopt
