ADOPT-A-STREET

The Town of Huntersville recognizes the need and petition for litter-free streets and sidewalks. The Adopt-A-Street program has been established to address this need and enable residents, community and civic organizations, or religious and social groups to contribute toward our town beautification efforts. 

Participants have the choice of two levels of adoption commitments: “Major” and “Minor.” 

Major adoptions include the adoption of town maintained streets that are at least 0.25 miles in length and approved by the Town. The approval of "major" adoption will include the adoption provisions of safety vests, gloves, trash bags and a road sign identifying you or your group as the adopter of the street. 

Minor adoptions include the adoption of town maintained streets that are at least 0.25 miles in length and are not approved by the town to include adoption provisions, due to the minimal amount of potential clean up required. Participants must provide their own safety and clean up equipment for minor adoptions. 

The Town will collect all bags of trash for BOTH Major and Minor adoptions. See Appendix A for approved street names and lengths. 

After one year of service, an organization may adopt more than one street as long as the combined lengths do not exceed two (2) miles. Contact the Town Coordinator for authorization.

As of April 2020, here is the list of approved streets (link), categorized by Major and Minor adoptions. Streets that are currently enrolled in active adoptions are as follows:

  • Stumptown Rd
  • Birkdale Commons Py
  • Platon Ave
  • Gibson Park Dr
  • Sherwood Dr
  • Maxwell Ave
  • Glencrest Dr

The appropriate agreement must be submitted and approved for the Adopt-A-Street Program.
