Adopt A Street

Adopt A StreetIf you've been looking for a way to give back to your community, consider the newly launched City of Des Moines department of Public Works Adopt A Street program. Adopt A Street is designed to increase public awareness of environmental needs along city roadways by making sections of certain roadsides available for “adoption.”  This gives the adopting individuals or group’s opportunities to improve the appearance of our roadsides throughout the city.
