Adopt A Street Program

Thank you for your willingness to participate in our Adopt a Street Program. Unfortunately we do not have the resources currently to entertain your request. We do not have an active Volunteer Program. If in the future the status of thhis program changes you will be notified. We apologize for any inconvenience.This program was started to allow citizen of the City San Jose the opportunity to adopt and actually maintain a City owned parcel. This would consist of cleaning up the area (Your Parcel Adopted) by picking up litter and debris, weeding, trimming of shrubs and bushes, raking of leaves. Log in hours and the amount of debris collected into the Volunteer 2 Database.
