Even With The Recession, You Can Afford To Adopt A Street

The fashionable thing to do right now is adopting babies from foreign countries, but I have a more affordable idea; how about adopting a Coeur d'Alene street?

With spring here, Coeur d'Alene is once again looking for groups, families, citizens, etc. to take part in their Adopt-a-Street program.

Here's how it works: you adopt a street and the City will provide signage, safety vests, and orange litter bags for you to keep that street free of litter and debris. The city will collect the bags the next working day after they have been filled. Adopt-a-Street volunteers are encouraged to pick up a minimum of twice per year, usually spring and fall.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, contact Diana Booth, City of CDA Street Maintenance Dept. at 208-769-2235.
