Adopt-A-Spot in Lewisville!

 

Adopt-A-Spot is a program developed by Keep Lewisville Beautiful. It gives individuals and groups a public way to show pride in our community and to help keep Lewisville litter-free.

            

 

About the program:

The Keep Lewisville Beautiful Adopt-A-Spot program encourages citizen participation in beautification projects and litter clean-ups of designated public areas on a monthly basis in the Lewisville community.  A spot could be a park, trail, road, creek (see Clean Stream Team Program), median, or city entryway monument sign.  Individuals, organizations, and/or businesses may agree to keep a designated spot cleared of litter for a period of one year or more. All areas are subject to approval by KLB and the City of Lewisville.
KLB partners with the City to approve locations, and install an Adopt-A-Spot sign with the name(s) of program participant(s) in their adopted area. KLB will also provide free cleanup supplies to help maintain the adopted areas (appropriate to the size of your group) including: trash bags, cotton or plastic gloves, safety vests, and litter grabbers, and keep a yearly log of adopter’s hours and bags of trash collected.
Most spots within the city limits that are not currently maintained by an adopter may be adopted, with special attention to those places that appear neglected and trash-ridden.  Please note that areas such as Hwy 121, Main Street, I-35, and FM 3040 are not adoptable due to TxDot regulations.
The Adopt-A-Spot program is a free community program. To help with program costs, KLB encourages Adopt-A-Spot participants to become Keep Lewisville Beautiful members at a level they are comfortable with.
