Adopt-a-Street

Adopt-A-Street is a volunteer program for environmentally conscious residents who want to keep Eden Prairie's streets free of litter. Residents, groups or organizations contribute their time picking up litter along roadways to create a cleaner environment.

Adopt-A-Street is valuable to our community in several ways including:

  • Helping maintain the natural beauty of our community
  • Saving tax dollars by allowing maintenance crews to devote their time to other projects
  • Providing a welcoming environment to visitors and creating community pride
