Adopt a Spot

About the Program

City of Concord is proud to offer the Adopt-A-Spot Program to its citizens. Through this program, we can all work together to keep Concord beautiful. When a group or individual adopts a spot they agree to maintain the "spot" by picking up litter, weeding, mowing, and trimming. Additionally, participants can but are not required to plant flowers and paint when applicable. Once an area has been adopted we will place a sign on the area to highlight the person/group who is maintain the area.

Suggestions for your Adopt A Spot Area:
* Give it lots of LOVE
* Plant flowers (drought hardy and native plants are recommended)
* Install bark mulch annually (we recommend 2 - 3 inches to help reduce weeds and keep moisture in soil)
* Remove weeds
* Mow/trim
* Pick Up Trash
* We recommend giving your area a little extra TLC each Spring and again in late Fall.

Please do not do any of the following in you area:
* Install plants that will grow over 4 feet tall
* Plant non native plants
* Plant or Prune Trees (please talk with us if your are interested)
* Use any type of pesticides
* Install lights or reflective materials
* No private signs are allowed
* Install irrigation systems


Once you have chosen a spot please contact Chris Jacques at 603-225-8690 so he can remove the spot from the list. To finalize adopting the spot, you will need to fill out the General Release Form (PDF) and Agreement Form (PDF) and return them to:

  • City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department

Our goal is to work with local volunteers to help beautify areas around the city.
