City Recognizes Adopt-A-Road Volunteers


The City of Santa Maria is pleased to recognize local organizations who are giving back to the community through participation in the Adopt-A-Road program – and extends a welcome invitation to others who may be interested.

The program was first established by the City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department in January 2001 and was relaunched in August 2016. Adopt-A-Road has been well-received by the community and is viewed as a fun, educational, and worthwhile program. Many individuals, organizations, and businesses have taken on the civic responsibility to keep City roads clean.

The program asks volunteers to commit to clean a minimum of once every two months over a two-year span. The volunteers choose any major area and upon agreement by the City, then devote time cleaning, picking up litter, and beautifying the roadside using equipment and safety gear provided by the Recreation and Parks Department. Those who commit to Adopt-A-Road are rewarded with recognition signs on the adopted roadway and a certificate of appreciation once the two years are completed.

The Adopt-A-Road program has had such great success this past year thanks to the dedication of those listed below:
