"Adopt Downtown" Program To Keep Waxhaw Beautiful: How You Can Help

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

"Adopt Downtown" Program In Waxhaw, North Carolina

 

Did you know you can adopt a block in Downtown Waxhaw to assist the efforts of Waxhaw's Parks & Recreation and Public Services Departments help keep downtown Waxhaw beautiful? The idea behind Adopt Waxhaw North Carolina Main Street CommunityDowntown is to enhance the appearance of downtown Waxhaw as part of the Waxhaw Main Street Program.

 

Adopting a block in downtown Waxhaw involves four yearly clean-ups by the adopting group. To do each cleanup, participants can request the Town of Waxhaw to provide trash bags, recycling information, trash collection services, safety vests, etc.  Participants can further contribute to the Downtown environment through beautification initiatives such as plantings, art, and other initiatives. For more information about Adopt Downtown program procedures, click here.

 

Four Waxhaw Downtown Blocks You Can Adopt

 

  1. E. N. Main Street Block: This area is bounded by N. Broome Street to the west, N. Providence Street tothe east, Howie Mine Roadtothe north, and the CSX Railroad right-of-way to the south.

  2. W. N. Main Street Block: This area is bounded by Rehobeth Road on the west, Price Street to the north, N. Broome Street to the east, and CSX Railroad right-of-way to the south.

  3. W. S. Main Street Block:This area is bounded by Rehobeth Road on the west, CSX Railroad right-of-way on the north, S. Broome Street on the East, and Caldwell Street to the south.

  4. E. S. Main Street Block: This area is bounded by S. Broome Street to the west, CSX Railroad right-of-way to the north, McKibben

 

Adopt Downtown participants can pay for a sign in the block with the individual or group’s name on it that will remain until the adoption term is ended.
