     As described on the website, the Adopt-a-Roadway Program is a volunteer litter prevention program for county roads. Similar to the Florida Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway Program, which focuses solely on state highways and interstates, the County's program encourages local civic organizations, beautification, fraternal and business groups to adopt two or more miles of county and/or township roadways.

     To participate in the program, an organization must be willing to pick up litter at least four times a year and provide adult supervision for youth groups that participate in cleanups.

     All an organization needs to get started is volunteers who are in good physical shape responsible and interested in helping to keep Lake County's communities clean and beautiful.

     TOVA has adopted Wilson Lake Parkway as part of the Adopt-a-Roadway Program and a current road permit application is on file with the Lake County Public Works Department.

     The TOVA member that coordinates this ongoing project has several responsibilities:  notify the County of the date and time of the pickup, how many volunteers participated, how long the group was out, and how many bags of garbage were picked up; maintain a safe working environment for the volunteers; work with the Webmaster to publicize the event and add photos; conduct pickups a minimum of four times a year.
