Neighborhood Revitalization

Neat Street Program

Neat Street is a program whereby neighbors adopt a street and commit to keeping it as free of trash as possible. For many of us, this means walking the street about once every two weeks with a bucket and grabbers. Dealing with larger issues like down trees, illegal dumping, or boarding up houses is not expected, though those needs can be reported to MPNA so that we can pursue solutions with the proper authorities. If you are interested in adoptingĀ a street, please reach out to Chad Schlosser by Facebook or at 906-298-1917.
