Adopt A Street

Adopt A Street

The City of Des Moines department of Public Works has launched an Adopt A Street program 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.
