Tempe’s Adopt-A-Street, Adopt-A-Park and Adopt-A-Path programs allow individuals, businesses and organizations to help maintain Tempe’s streets, multi-use paths and parks. While Tempe does its best to clean up litter, pull weeds and remove graffiti, the city of Tempe could use help. By participating in these programs, residents are able to do something good for the environment and for the community.
Adopting a street includes things like pulling weeds, reporting graffiti and damaged light poles and picking up litter. The length of an adoptable street is a minimum of one mile, but no more than two miles. The commitment is a few hours each cleaning with a minimum of one clean up every three months for two years.
Adopt-A-Path volunteers help with removing litter, pulling weeds, reporting graffiti and damaged City property on the multi-use path system. It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the day while helping to clean up Tempe paths. The length of an adoptable path is a minimum of one mile, but no more than two miles. And most Tempe multi-use paths are also available for adoption. Like the Adopt-A-Street program, the commitment is a few hours each cleaning with a minimum of one clean up every three months for two years.
Tempe’s parks help increase the visual appeal of neighborhoods and provide a safe place for neighbors to gather, friends to meet and kids to play. Clean up duties include picking up trash and litter, raking leaves, pulling weeds, fluffing playground sand, sanitizing playground equipment and more.
Applications are accepted year-round. To adopt a street, path or park, call 480-350-4311 or visit www.tempe.gov/adopt
