Adopt A Street Program

Show Low's Adopt-a-Street program is similar in concept to the Adopt-A-Highway program operated by ADOT. It enables interested groups to adopt a section of one of the city’s streets. In return for conducting scheduled clean-ups of that stretch of street twice a year, the sponsors are recognized with signage located at the beginning and ending of their designated street sections. The program enables community and civic organizations, private businesses, and churches to participate directly in enhancing the overall appearance of the city.

Get Involved

Any interested group that has an enthusiasm and dedication to make our community a better place to live can adopt a street. We welcome:

  • Church groups
  • Community and civic organizations
  • Individual businesses and business organizations
  • Neighborhood associations
Commitment

Volunteers make the commitment to remove litter along pre-designated sections of city streets a minimum of twice a year for a 2-year period. Volunteers are encouraged to monitor conditions on their section of the street and report problems to city staff members for follow up.
