Community Safety & Hospitality Team

Our Community Safety & Hospitality ambassadors are on the ground seven days a week in six downtown neighborhoods assisting visitors, residents, workers and those in need. From providing directions to out-of-towners and supporting parks and public spaces to keeping an eye on clutter, this dedicated team helps keep downtown safe, welcoming and livable.
