‘Adopt-a-mile’ to help keep Lancaster clean


Participants will also receive recognition at a City Council meeting and have a sign installed at the location of the adopted roadway section.

“The TIDE-Y Up A Mile program is a win-win for the community and those involved. Not only will this program recognize participants for their clean-up efforts, but it also brings more awareness to the impacts of litter and trash – building community pride around a beautiful Lancaster,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris.

With over 1,400 lane miles of roadway throughout the City of Lancaster, it can be common to find litter, bulky debris and tumbleweeds across Lancaster’s streets. The TIDE-Y Up A Mile Program allows community members to beautify the city, bring recognition to their work, and encourage other community members to prevent littering and dumping on the roadsides.

“We are excited to engage our community to create a better tomorrow together with the TIDE-Y Up A Mile program,” said Lancaster Vice Mayor Marvin Crist. “We look forward to making Lancaster a nicer place for everyone and bringing attention to the key volunteers that are making it happen.”

Applications are open to participate in the TIDE-Y Up A Mile Program. The City welcomes individuals, businesses, public agencies, and organizations to apply. The adoption period for a section of roadway is two years.
