This morning, Metro announced details of the new “Adopt A Station” program that is available to business owners along the light rail line. I had a chance to speak with Marty McNeil from Metro and was given the following bullet points for Metro’s Adopt A Station program.
1: Open to business adjacent to the station
3: Program available to one business at a time for one year. First come, first served!
4: There is a fee of $100.00 ( covers signage)
5: There is a training and education process. Businesses will look after stations, report grafiti, report maintenance issues, help with trash etc.
6: At the end of the year, if another person, sponsorship will rotate so that others can participate.
I’ll update some more information about the program a little later… For now, take a look at this video of Tom Simpolt explaining the Metro Adopt A Station program. Tom mentions that the program is available to businesses, neighborhoods, church groups, community groups etc. “This is a way for light rail to reach out to the community.”
