City Offers Business Partnership Opportunities with Adopt-an-Island Program


City Offers Business Partnership Opportunities with Adopt-an-Island Program
QUINCY – AUGUST 7, 2020 Mayor Thomas Koch announced the City has a number of prime spots available for the City’s long-standing adopt-an-island program. The program provides businesses with an opportunity to beautify and maintain traffic islands in high profile spots throughout the city. In return, the City recognizes the business with a sign on the property. Thousands of people pass by most islands every day.
“Our adopt-an-island program has been a successful public-private partnership since the 1990’s,” said Mayor Koch. “The businesses get publicity for their community involvement and the City receives help in our beautification efforts. It’s a tremendous and affordable opportunity for local businesses to get their name out there.”
The Department of Natural Resources’ Park Division maintains an active list of available islands. To inquire about the program please email Mike Cassinelli at mcassinelli@quincyma.gov or call (617) 376-1251.
Islands are available on some of Quincy’s most-travelled thoroughfares. There are currently two dozen islands and three dozen panting beds maintained through this program.
Added Mayor Koch, “I want to express my gratitude to the participants in the program. Whether it is along the Squantum Causeway, the work of the Wollaston Garden Club, at the Doughboy statue, or the Hough’s Neck Garden Club there are some great civic-minded people helping keep our city cleaner and greener. Beautification is a team effort and I appreciate all the help from everyone involved.”
