The City of Goodlettsville's Adopt-a-Greenspace program provides a way to show pride in our community and is a great and inexpensive project that generates publicity and recognition for your group's name. The Adopt-A-Greenspace program allows interested groups to assist with litter pickup, preservation and maintenance of landscaped areas, increased landscaping, and general upkeep of the City's greenspaces.

The Adopt-a-Greenspace program allows individuals or groups to adopt a specific greenspace. Through adoption, these individuals or groups may assume the responsibility for any or all of the eligible activities, which lead to:

  • reduced litter;
  • enhancement of the environment;
  • beautification of green space; and
  • broad-based community support for anti-litter and beautification programs

The City of Goodlettsville will work with the adopting group to determine the specific area to be adopted. Street medians, interstate exits, and other greenspace areas are eligible to be adopted.

The main focus of the program is litter control. Volunteers will agree to pick up litter in the adopted greenspace at least four times a year. Other activities such as plantings must be approved by the City prior to work being undertaken.
