Adopt-a-Street

The City of Goodlettsville's Adopt-a-Street program provides a way to show pride in our community and is a great and inexpensive project that generates publicity and recognition for your group. The program allows interested groups an opportunity to clean a specific area of a street's right-of-way.

Volunteers are asked to conduct four clean-ups a year alongside the adopted route with the City providing clean-up materials and disposal. After your first clean-up, your group's name is placed on the City of Goodlettsville's Adopt-a-Street signage which will be placed on your adopted route. Recommended roadway coverage will be about a 1/2 mile in length and cover both sides of the road.
