The East Atlanta Community Association’s (EACA) Beautification Committee is poised to kick off East Atlanta’s Adopt-A-Street program, with a goal of getting concerned and proactive citizens, businesses, organizations, and groups to actively participate in enhancing East Atlanta’s appearance and cleanliness.
The program is similar to the Adopt-A-Highway programs operated by many states, counties, and cities across the U.S., with which you may already be familiar. The program enables interested citizens, businesses, organizations, and groups to adopt sections of streets throughout the East Atlanta area.
In return for conducting scheduled clean-ups of that stretch of street at least monthly, the sponsors will be recognized with signage located within each designated street section. The signs will display the East Atlanta Adopt-A-Street Program slogan and the sponsor’s name (individual, group, business, or organization), in recognition of their commitment to the community. There is no sponsor cost for participation.
Sponsors will be asked to make a commitment for either one or two years. Sponsors also will be encouraged to monitor conditions on their street section and to report problems or issues to the East Atlanta Adopt-A-Street Coordinator for follow-up.
The new program was featured at EACA’s tent at the recent East Atlanta Strut festival, and EACA was pleased by the enthusiastic response voiced by festival attendees. In addition, EACA’s Beautification Committee will solicit additional sponsors at a final pre-adoption opportunity at EACA’s tent at the November 10 East Atlanta Farmers Market, in advance of the official Program Kick-Off on November 11, 2011. Potential sponsors can also indicate their interest in participating by contacting Beautification Committee Chair Kevin Spigener by email at email@example.com.
