Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, in partnership with the Department of Public Services, invites you to Adopt-A-Spot!
Adopt-A-Spot encourages you to improve your neighborhood by: cleaning littered curbs, sidewalks, and vacant lots; cutting grass and high weeds; planting flowers; removing signs from utility poles; reporting graffiti; and other activities.
Take part in this exciting and innovative program by "adopting" a portion of your neighborhood. From business districts to your own block, "spot" will benefit your community in more ways than one!

In appreciation of your commitment to the quality of life within your community, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful will provide supplies and support to aid in the beautification of your neighborhood.
You will receive:

SPOT CAPTAIN Responsibilities
Any individual, organized group, or business may participate in the Adopt-A-Spot program. Up to three (3) individuals, an organization, or a business can adopt an area together.
All adopted spots must be on public property or in the public right-of-way. This includes traffic islands, city-owned vacant lots, and the right-of-way between the curb and the sidewalk.
KCB will score each assigned location at random once per quarter to ensure that all requirements are being met.
1) Clean the spot at least once per month.
Spot Captains may be required to pick up litter more than once per month if the appearance of the adopted spot becomes unkempt.
2) Report the amount of litter and recycling collected on a monthly basis to KCB.
3) Adopt the spot for at least 1 year.
KCB will contact you at the end of each fiscal year to renew or discontinue your participation in the program.
