The Adopt-a-Street program is an opportunity for volunteers to keep Maple Grove's streets clean. It is similar to the Adopt-a-Park program and open to schools, community groups, civic organizations, faith communities, businesses, families and individuals. A two-year commitment is required with cleaning to occur at least two times a year. Participating groups and individuals sign a simple agreement with the city. Bags are provided at no charge for the clean-ups; bags will be removed afterwards by the city. Signs are erected recognizing the adoptive group, business, or individual.
