The Adopt-a-Spot program will be a catalyst to organize active community participation in keeping the City of Ramsey beautiful. This program is a partnership between the City of Ramsey and its citizens. This program will build civic pride by beautifying our city streets, parks, trails, a designated spot, etc., whereby increasing safety and decreasing litter and other pollutants through trash removal and other volunteer beautification efforts.
The City provides a supply of trash bags, reflective vests, and gloves to the volunteers. The City will also give the organization a certificate suitable for framing and erect a special Adopt-a-Spot recognition sign in your designated area.
If your organization decides to Adopt-a-Spot, select a representative as liaison to the Program Coordinator. Select the spot that your group would like to adopt and then complete and return the Agreement Contract. View the application (PDF).
