Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Steve Labriola announce the launch of a new ‘Adopt-A-Spot’ program through which volunteer organizations interested in enriching local parks, parklets or other town property can leave their personal touch for the world to enjoy.
“Volunteer organizations regularly approach our town with ideas to enrich local parks in their neighborhood and leave their mark on our society,” said Supervisor Saladino. “From the planting of flowers and trees to rock gardens and dedication benches, this program provides volunteer organizations an opportunity to get involved, give back and help enhance our community through improvements and cleanups.”
Volunteer organizations can ‘adopt’ any of the 200 parklets located throughout the Town, as well as traffic islands and other town properties. Groups that do not have a specific location in mind can receive assistance from the town in identifying an appropriate location. Interested parties will be asked to submit a proposal and plan, with input from parks personnel, for their project.
“This program provides a great opportunity for community groups to leave their individual mark on a local park and further beautify our community,” said Councilman Labriola. “Groups will be recognized for their efforts with a sign at their location thanking them for their efforts in keeping our communities beautiful.” For more information on the ‘Adopt-A-Spot’ program call (516) 797-4128, or CLICK HERE to fill out an application.
