Streets Maintenance



Adopt-A-Street - Download BrochureThe Adopt-A-Street Program is a fun and worthwhile program that will give you, your company, school or organization recognition while saving taxpayer dollars. You can adopt a City street and beautify a part of Paso Robles in partnership with the City. This is a great way to promote community pride and goodwill within your organization, and among family and friends.

Adopting a street requires litter pickup on your designated street segment  at least once a month for one year. The City will provide safety gear, trash bags and trash pickup. For complete information about the program, download the Application Packet and Print a Brochure.

If adopting a street sounds like something you or your organization would like to get involved in, complete the application packet and return it to the City of Paso Robles, Streets Division, 1000 Spring Street, Paso Robles, CA 93446. If you have any questions about the program, contact Michael Hendry at 805-227-7239.
