The Adopt-a-Spot Program is an initiative of the Novato Streetscape Committee, a Committee established by
the Novato City Council in 1994.

The aim of the Program is to partner with Novato residents and businesses to beautify our City’s public spaces
while building community, fostering environmental stewardship, and growing civic pride. Residents and
businesses can either choose their own spot to adopt or choose from a group of pre-selected public spaces
suitable for volunteer activities including picking up litter and removing weeds. Examples of the types of areas
that can be adopted are publicly owned sidewalks, gutters, storm drain inlets, and parks.

The removal of litter from these areas helps prevent pollution from reaching our creeks, bays, and the ocean
and is particularly important prior to, and during, winter storms to ensure proper storm water drainage and help prevent flooding. Regular removal of annual and invasive weeds helps reduce fire danger and weed seed dispersion.

The Program has been designed to empower individuals, business owners, community organizations, faith-based groups, and schools to play an active role in maintaining the beauty, cleanliness, and safety of our
neighborhoods. Volunteers can perform their Adopt-a-Spot activities at any time that suits their schedule, and the Program is a great way for Novato middle and high school students to fulfill their community service hours!
