Keep Charlotte Beautiful Accepting Adopt a City Neighborhood Applications

Keep Charlotte Beautiful (KCB), one of the nation’s first affiliates of Keep America Beautiful, is accepting applications for the 2011 Adopt a City Neighborhood Program. Any neighborhood within City limits is eligible to apply. KCB’s objective is to enhance the quality of life for Charlotteans by maintaining and improving the cleanliness and beauty of our City. The KCB committee works closely with neighborhood organizations and homeowners’ groups, as well as with area businesses, schools and local governments to achieve these goals.

Every year, the KCB Committee members select a neighborhood to adopt and work with residents to provide a community service/beautification project of the neighborhood’s choosing. There is no cost for the neighborhood to participate, however, neighborhood volunteers and a commitment to maintain the project after completion is necessary.
Some examples of projects completed in recent years have included: beautification of neighborhood entrances, landscaping neighborhood common area and painting a neighborhood center.

Neighborhoods must apply by January 31, 2011 to be considered. Visit for more information and to download an adoption application.

Completed applications can be sent to:
