Public Involvement & Participation

The objectives of the public involvement program include providing opportunities for the public to participate in program development and implementation and to assure compliance with applicable state and local public notice requirements.

 

Concord manages several volunteer programs that involve community volunteers and serve to protect the environment and educate our citizens about stormwater and pollution prevention.

 

Biannual Litter Sweeps

During the Fall and Spring of each year, in concert with the NCDOT program, Concord hosts Litter Sweeps during which City coworkers work together with recognized neighborhood associations to remove litter from all City streets.  Litter removed from our roadsides does not make its way into storm drains or local bodies of water.

 

Annual Big Sweeps

Each October, City coworkers and local volunteers work together to remove trash, debris and obstructions from local streams. 

 

Storm Drain Marking Program

Concord’s Storm Drain Marking Program is an ongoing volunteer program in which volunteers affix plaques to City storm drains that read “NO DUMPING!  DRAINS TO CREEK.”  This program seeks to foster community involvement as well as educate citizens, as many erroneously believe that storm drainage receives treatment before it enters into waterways.

 

 

 

Adopt-A-Stream Program

Concord is currently working to develop an Adopt-A-Stream program.  Volunteer groups will apply to adopt specified stream segments and agree to do stream clean-ups on a determined schedule in return for a sign displaying their names as adopters of the specified stream segment.
