Keep Pecos Proud
The Keep Pecos Proud Committee feels that a cleaner and more beautiful Pecos is a great asset in attracting people and businesses while instilling a greater pride in our town.
Keep Pecos Proud’s Adopt-A-Spot is a program that encourages community ownership of public areas and to prevent littering through beautification and maintenance.
Volunteers are responsible for picking up thousands of pounds of litter each year from Pecos’s roadways, contributing to a cleaner, more beautiful town; a higher quality of life for residents; and a vibrant local economy. Being an adopter gives participants opportunities to give back to the community, teach their children about community responsibility, receive positive publicity for their business, and gain valuable community service experience. Participants commit to a two year investment and must clean up their spot a minimum of 6 times per year.
The Adopt-A-Spot program includes three levels of participation:
- WATCHER | reports litter problem areas
- ADOPTER | actively cleans an assigned area
- SPONSOR | financially supports program to underwrite costs

Business Landscape and Yard of the Month
Keep Pecos Proud (KPP) has been established to promote goodwill and reward exemplary lawn care in the community. The purpose is to recognize neighbors who demonstrate above-average efforts in maintaining their property, contributing to the overall appearance of our town. The program and award are administered entirely by volunteers. March through October, the KPP committee will choose a lawn that best typifies the qualities of: uniqueness, beauty, appeal, and consistency with the guidelines.
Since the KPP committee deals mainly with “curb appeal,” nominations will be for front and side yards jointly, as well as the exterior of the house or building. The committee will select one residential and one business landscape during the first days of each month. The winners are provided a decorative yard sign for display showcasing their winning yard, a posting and photo on our community website, and an announcement in the Pecos Enterprise Newspaper.
Have you seen a yard that’s worthy? Download the nomination criteria and submit your nominations by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
