Join the City to beautify its streets with an Adopt-A-Spot Beautification partnership! Your family, business, faith community or civic organization can partner with the City to plant and maintain landscaping areas. The city has identified beds available for adoption. Some are existing beds that need a new adopter and others are new beds created from road construction.
