An Alternative Adoption

The Adopt-A-Street Program might be bust….due to the requirements involved with the organization itself…

Why not look outside the box….and do our own….a spin-off…cut down to size ….producing a better fit with LBTS….

BCbythesea…..while talking to Shirley Rusotti….who stepped down as Chair of the program…being overwhelmed by what it entailed….it was her perception of what she thought it would be….that begs the question….why not?….

Shirley thought she could adopt her street….and do what would be required …keeping it clean….keeping it sound….and was disappointed when she found out differently…..but I’m for Shirley’s idea….and think it could be a winner….

Whether it’s Shirley or somebody else in charge….a commissioner….or Mayor……or an organization….better yet…. organizations…. the CIC…ALONG SIDE ….the POA….ALONG SIDE….the Garden Club…..each imploring their members to adopt their own street …….to make sure the whole town is covered….

No need for a 2 hour class….no need for extensive oversight….just neighbors taking pride in their neighborhoods….and extending that pride……… a little further down the street………

All this talk about “unity”….”working together”…. being “non-political”…why not start here?…..

Taking a good idea….the Adopt-A Street program….that was a little off the mark…. for this little town……and making it a great first step to see …….

just who is ……….talking the talk and who is……… walking the walk….for the future of this town…..
