We will pay for and install two (2) recognition signs, one at each end of your adopted stretch in the direction of travel. The size of the signs will be determined by the Department. Each sign will include a panel that prominently displays your name with an attached flip-down travel warning sign. Both signs will remain at the designated locations during the entire two-year period. Participants may also choose, at their cost, to provide us with customized recognition panels that incorporate logos or insignias. Please note: products, slogans, telephone and fax numbers, Internet or E-mail addresses, and street names or directions may not be placed on customized sign panels.
We will acknowledge your contribution to the Adopt-A-Bike Path Program in a press release to local community newspapers and social media. A copy of the release will be forwarded to you for your records.
We will provide your group leader with safety training before your cleanup effort begins. We will also lend you safety gear, including hard hats, vests, and gloves for the duration of the agreement. Additional equipment and supplies will be provided as needed and as available.
We will provide trash bags and will collect and dispose of all trash collected.
We will issue the necessary permit free of charge.
We will give you an attractive Certificate of Appreciation when your adoption is over.
