Background

 What began as a grassroots program through the Texas Department of Transportation in 1985 has spread throughout America -- in states and cities. Now Americans everywhere are adopting highways, streets and parks.

In Broken Arrow, the Adopt-A-Mile program began in 1988 as a Chamber of Commerce endeavor. A few years later the responsibility of linking civic-minded individuals, businesses, churches and organizations with our streets and parks was handed over to the City's Parks & Recreation Department. In partnership with the City, Keep BA Beautiful has become an advocate for the Adopt A Mile/Park/Trail program.

The inclusion of Parks and Trails into the program has given another opportunity for families to participate in the program. Parks are a perfect place for families with children to participate. The Liberty Trail is a pedestrian and a cyclist’s avenue.

Goal

The goal of the program is to have each linear right-of-way mile, each public park and the Liberty Trail "adopted" by a community club, volunteer, church, business or school group. The program is a yearly adoption with an annual renewal based on the periodic cleanups conducted.

Your group's responsibility

Groups are responsible for their own cleanups, a minimum of four times a year of their right-of-way, park or trail and reporting cleanup dates. Safety vests and trash bags are supplied by the City for each group's clean-up days.

One-time fee

The program incurs a one-time charge of $50 for adopting a mile and $25 for adopting a park or trail. The fee helps pay the cost of the sign(s); two for each adopted mile, one for each park/trail. The City posts the signs to recognize the group's effort to keep the mile/park/trail clean and litter free.
