CORNWALL – City officials are “thrilled” with the response to the new Adopt-A-Street program.

As of Monday, 36 residents are taking part in the civic pride program where they adopt a street, recreational path or park to clean up from time-to-time during the summer and fall.

“We are thrilled with the response we have received to the program so far,” said Jim Althouse, Parks & Landscaping Supervisor with the City of Cornwall. “We are fortunate to have community-minded residents who are willing to give their time to help make our City look even more beautiful.”

The idea was first proposed by residents Rod and Marie-Paule Millard, who were the first participants when they adopted Nick Kaneb Drive.

As part of the program, the city provides supplies and safety training and picks up the garbage collected.
