Enhancing the Town
The Town of Babylon Adopt-A-Spot program was designed to help enhance the overall appearance of our town. The program invites professional landscapers or community groups who want to beautify a town-owned parcel of land to adopt that spot for a minimum of two years.
Once a spot has been adopted a contract is signed between the town and the adopting organization setting out the responsibilities of both parties. The organization agrees to maintain the spot on a regular basis, with a minimum maintenance schedule of four times a year. The town donates annual flowers from its greenhouse, perennial bulbs, garbage bags, and gloves, as well as a sign advertising the adopting company or organization's name and telephone number.
Through cooperation and community effort the Adopt-A-Spot program helps transform unattractive sites into beautiful additions to our neighborhoods.
A contract is signed by the participating company pledging to keep the adopted area for a period of two years. This program is an excellent opportunity for professional landscapers to showcase the work of their organization.
The Town of Babylon will provide annual flowers and bulbs for the landscaper to plant in its Adopt-A-Spot and will also provide a sign crediting the company for its dedicated efforts.
The Adopt-A-Spot program is available to licensed professional landscapers or a business or organization who agrees to hire a professional company to maintain the site.
