ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (Jan. 17, 2023) – The Town of Oro Valley is pleased to announce that the Adopt-A-Roadway/Trail program website has recently been awarded a Flag Forward award by Cartegraph, a leader in infrastructure asset management software.

In November 2021, the Town of Oro Valley launched a new website for the Town’s Adopt-A-Road/Trail programs, designed to save volunteers time and alleviate wait times with several new improvements. The website allows volunteers to check the availability of roads and trails, fill out paperwork and watch training videos online, rather than coming to Town buildings.

The Flag Forward awards are handpicked by the Cartegraph CEO and are intended to recognize government organizations that are creating more efficient, responsive and sustainable communities through smart infrastructure management.

“This upgraded program is a successful effort to engage the community to help us keep our roadways and trails beautiful and free of debris,” said Aimee Ramsey, Public Works Assistant Director. “By improving communication and technology, we’ve made it easier for the community to participate in the Adopt-A-Programs. Thanks to dedicated volunteers and staff, we are keeping Oro Valley beautiful with cleaner roads and trails.”

Adopt-A-Road/Trail is a beautification program that is part of Keep OV Beautiful, a volunteer-driven program designed to maintain litter and roadside debris in Oro Valley. To adopt a road or trail in Oro Valley, click here. To learn more about Keep OV Beautiful opportunities, click here
