Public Realm Operations Team

The Public Realm Operations Team ensures DSA-managed parks and public spaces are clean, well-maintained and welcoming for all. Each morning, PRO Team ambassadors set up activities and programming in Westlake Park, Occidental Square and other busy spots in our urban core. The team also provides staffing and support for DSA/MID public realm events and seasonal activations. Additionally, the team tracks public assets and partners with city agencies, providing information to repair light poles, street signs, potholes and other items.
