Adopt-a-Street
The City of Clearwater initiated the Adopt-A-Street Program in 1997 to help keep Clearwater sparkling through dedicated volunteers from business, industrial, civic, youth, and non-profit organizations.

 

The Adopt-A-Street Program encourages organizations to adopt an area of roadway that is about one mile in length with residential and commercial use for litter control every other month. The Adopt-A-Street Program promotes community pride by demonstrating to residents, tourists, and potential businesses that the community is active, energetic and cares about a clean and safe environment. This program has proven highly effective in promoting personal responsibility and changing attitudes regarding litter.
