Adopt An Island

Adoption Program

The City of Lowell's Adopt an Island Program provides opportunities for companies, civic groups, institutions and individuals to adopt a traffic island or other public way green space and create attractive, welcoming "oases" throughout the City. Adopters agree to invest "sweat equity" to maintain an island, in return for which an Adopt an Island sign recognizing the island's adopter is installed by the City.


To begin the process of becoming an Island Adopter please contact Leticia Marques Neighborhood Liaison at 978-674-1007 to find an island that suits your interest and discuss guidelines.
