The Clean & Safe Team of Maintenance and Safety Ambassadors are deployed in the five Downtown neighborhoods 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our Maintenance crews perform maintenance activities in the public right of way supplementing the City of San Diego's services. Our Safety Ambassadors serve to complement the City of San Diego's Police Department acting as extra eyes on the street, assist visitors with directions and information, and provide social outreach referrals.

The Downtown Property Business Improvement District (PBID) Board meets on the second Tuesday of every month, except December and August, at 3:00pm at 401 B Street, Suite 100. There is an opportunity for public comment at the beginning of every meeting where members of the public are free to share your thoughts with the Board.
