NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - New Rochelle residents, businesses and organizations looking to truly be a part of their hometown will soon truly be able to do so through the city’s recently instituted “Adopt a Street” program.
Through the program, interested parties can assume responsibility of helping to beautify sections of commercial New Rochelle, for which they will be rewarded with signage honoring their commitment to assisting in keeping the city as clean as possible.
According to New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson, through the “Adopt a Street” program, interested organizations can volunteer to organize clean-ups and sponsor beautification measures on streets within or surrounding commercial areas.
The program is available to non-profit or civic organizations businesses and government entities, provided they are based in New Rochelle. Participants are required to host a minimum of six scheduled cleanups throughout the year, including a “major” cleanup in the spring.
"This is not a substitute, of course, for the city’s basic maintenance responsibilities, but with 176 miles of roads to oversee, it can’t hurt to have a few extra hands," Bramson added. “By partnering with local businesses, institutions, neighborhood associations, and civic groups, we can keep New Rochelle’s roadways looking their best."
