Adopt-a-Road Program

Keep Santa Fe County Beautiful. Adopt-a-Road!!  Volunteers include young adult organizations, businesses, church groups, families, and individuals.

How to adopt a road: 1/4 mile or 5 miles? It's your choice!

Contact Claudia Borchert, Sustainability manager, at [bot protected email address] or (505) 992-3044 for a brochure about the Program and to receive required sign-up forms.

Interested groups will need to complete two forms: the Adopt-a-Road Application Form indicating the portion of road you would like to adopt and the Hold Harmless Agreement Form that addresses the legal/safety concerns of roadside work.

Once you have signed-up, Santa Fe County will provide you and/or your group with the following:

  • Two road signs. The road signs will define your segment of road and will state your or your group's name in appreciation of your efforts (You may also choose not to have road signs installed.)
  • A road safety lesson, clean-up supplies including collection bags, gloves,safety vests, a first aid kit, and, if requested, road-work warning signs for the duration of your clean-up.
  • The County can pick up bagged trash after your clean-up event.

Join Now! It's FREE!

Areas of major impact are located in the communities of La Cienega , El Rancho and Jacona, La Puebla, Nambe, Chimayo, Cañada de los Alamos, and the Agua Fria area. We are especially keen to see roads in these areas adopted.

This exemplary action will save tax dollars, grow community pride, render roadsides safer for those on foot or pedal, and of course, impart a more aesthetically pleasing travel experience for all who use our roadways.

Help keep Santa Fe beautiful by picking up litter and refuse from streets, parks, schools and neighborhoods. Come join the clean team and help make Santa Fe beautiful!
