           CAI-Georgia invites community management companies to partner on a quarterly clean-up. Learn how easy it is to adopt a road, get free signage and increase community value.

          CAI-GA  adopted a new road area through 'Keep Roswell Beautiful' (see map below).

          It includes Mansell Road between Crossville Rd and Alpharetta Hwy (Rte 9) & Commerce Parkway between Alpharetta Hwy & Old Roswell Rd. These roads need our help for the community. Signage is up to show our sponsorship.

          We will make the adoption process REALLY EASY.

          Signage & road sponsorship is FREE!
