Neighborhood program seeks applicants

CHARLOTTE – Keep Charlotte Beautiful, one of the nation’s first affiliates of Keep America Beautiful, is accepting applications for the 2011 Adopt a City Neighborhood Program.
Any neighborhood within city limits is eligible to apply. The program looks to enhance the quality of life for Charlotteans by maintaining and improving the cleanliness and beauty of Charlotte.  The Keep Charlotte Beautiful committee works closely with neighborhood organizations and homeowners’ groups, as well as with area businesses, schools and local governments to achieve these goals.
Every year, committee members select a neighborhood to adopt and work with residents to provide a community service beautification project of the neighborhood’s choosing.  There is no cost for the neighborhood to participate, however, neighborhood volunteers and a commitment to maintain the project after completion is necessary.
Some examples of projects completed in recent years have included:  beautification of neighborhood entrances, landscaping neighborhood common area and painting a neighborhood center.
Neighborhoods must apply by Jan. 31 to be considered. Visit the website,, for more information and to download an adoption application.
