(Saipan, The Marianas – Jan. 17, 2022) Partners and volunteers of The Governor’s Council of Economic Advisers (GCEA) Public Private Partnership (PPP) program started the year off by completing three community improvement projects. Northern Marianas Sports Association, Shirley’s Football Club/Shirley’s Coffee Shop, and Northern Marianas College completed Adopt-A-Median projects in high-traffic intersections in Saipan. The organizations gave streets, medians, curbs, and barriers much-needed facelifts and helped to improve the safety and visibility of the medians and curbs for motorists and pedestrians.

About the Adopt-A-Median program


The Adopt-A-Median program is an integral part of the GCEA’s Marianas Village Pride campaign and the Public Private Partnership Program. GCEA is actively accepting registration for projects in every village on Rota, Tinian, and Saipan. Schools, groups, families, and businesses can adopt, clean, and paint medians, sidewalks, or crosswalks in their villages. GCEA will provide the supplies. For the safety of the students, GCEA recommend that school groups adopt sidewalks and crosswalks around their schools.
