The Adopt-a-Spot Program is a joint effort between our city government and residents to keep our right-of-ways and neighborhoods clean and beautiful. This program allows our residents, businesses, clubs and organizations to express their pride and commitment to the community, while providing them with signage recognition for their time and efforts spent beautifying the City of Lancaster.
