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 Shauna Forcier Neighborhood Liaison at 978-674-1004 to find an island that suits your interest and discuss guidelines.
