The Downtown Ambassadors continue to make an impact on hospitality and safety in the central business district even during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Ambassadors circulate throughout downtown in their vibrant green pickup, on foot, on bicycles and on Segways to help visitors, create a friendly and welcoming environment and add extra eyes and ears on the street.

Between April and June of this year, the ambassadors:

Made 494 business contacts.
Reported 244 cases of graffiti and stickers.
Provided hospitality assists to 2,942 residents and visitors.
Provided 24 safety escorts and 24 motorist assistance.
These results were affected by social distancing protocols put in place due to COVID-19. The Downtown Ambassadors helped educate downtown visitors and guests about social distancing and assisted the Clean Team in sanitizing high-touch areas such as trash cans and parking meters.

The crew is on duty downtown from 7 a.m.-midnight, seven days a week. Contact the on-duty supervisor at 817-484-3723.
