MURRAY — The city is starting an Adopt a Roadway program to give local organizations and neighborhoods an opportunity to beautify the city.

Groups or individuals can adopt a street for a three-year service commitment or as a one-time project. Recognition signage will be provided for any group committing to three years of service with at least two scheduled cleanup activities per year.

The city has compiled a list of roadways that are eligible, or a group may suggest an alternate road within the city. Groups will be able to schedule cleanup events through a written request on the city’s website, murray.utah.gov.

Participants must be at least 12 years old, and those between 12-15 must be under the direct supervision of an adult. The city will provide each group with safety vests, garbage bags and safety instructions for each activity, and will also place warning signs in the area. City staff will pick up the filled garbage bags following cleanup events.

Interested individuals or groups should contact the Murray Public Works Department at 801-270-2440 or visit the office at 4646 S. 500 West.
