Adopt a Spot Volunteers making a difference downtown
In the recent movie Julia and Julie, Julie is moving to a new and perhaps less desirable neighborhood. A piece of airborne trash flies at her as she walks to the new apartment with her boyfriend.

It's just a moment in the film, but a moment is all it takes for trash to create an impression of neglect.

Understanding that the city budget is strained and that the city workers are doing their best with even with the cutbacks, Downtown New Bedford, Inc. has partnered with Operation Cleansweep to help keep the downtown area tidy and inviting as we move into the fall festival season that will bring thousands of visitors to the streets. If Julie should come looking for an apartment in downtown New Bedford, we want it to be clean.

Adopt A Spot Participants Receive Certificates of Participation
On September 9, 2009 Kelly Carvalho owner of On a Roll Restaurant on Union Street accepted the first Certificate of Participation issued to Adopt A Spot program participants. She was singled out for her enthusiastic advocacy of this program. She also accepted a broom and waste pan donated by Milhench Industrial Supply at a press conference held in front of her restaurant.

Even before the official certificate was issued, Kelly was busy keeping her spot on Union Street clean, very clean. She also keeps part of Wings Court planted, weeded and tidy.

On a Roll is one of over twenty downtown business people now involved in Adopt a Spot, and the results are visible. Our community roads compare very favorably with the roadsides of many local communities.
