The Downtown Ambassadors and Clean Team – the men and women in bright uniforms – are the Downtown Action Team’s eyes and ears throughout the district, making sure that Downtown’s visitors, workers, and business owners enjoy a safe and clean environment.
The Ambassadors are an important part of the Downtown Action Team. They serve several roles, including creating a welcoming, safe downtown, keeping the district sparkling clean, and acting as patrollers. Ambassadors patrol the entire BID, providing on call assistance to merchants, deterring aggressive panhandling and keeping a line of communication open with the police department in order to quickly respond to potentially unsafe situations. Ambassadors provide directions, historical facts, and other information to conventioneers and visitors. The Ambassador’s customer service duties also include serving as citizen and merchant escorts and providing social service outreach referrals to those in need of one of the district’s great shelters and aid centers.
Clean Team duties include removing litter, debris, broken glass, graffiti, gum and other debris from our streets and public rights-of-way. They work both on foot and on specialized equipment to assist in maintaining the business improvement district and work daily to make Downtown sparkle.
