Keeping Belltown Clean…
Each year MID Ambassadors have a Holiday Party and once again I am requesting donations of items that can be used as door prizes. In the past we have received pillows, gift certificates to stores, restaurants, or coffee shops and home-baked goodies. This is a great way to show your appreciation of their hard work in making Downtown Seattle a great place to live and work. I hope you take this opportunity to show appreciation and donate this year. Please get items to Dave Willard by Dec 19 as the party is the 20th.
If you need your items picked up, let Dave (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and they will work something out.
Founded by DSA in 1999, the Metropolitan Improvement District is a business-improvement area spanning 285 square blocks in downtown – from Denny Way to Pioneer Square and from I-5 to the waterfront. With funding from MID ratepayers, DSA provides cleaning, safety, concierge and homeless outreach services in six center city neighborhoods. Our ambassadors are on the streets of downtown every day, ensuring an inviting, safe and clean urban experience for everyone. The MID was renewed by the Seattle City Council in 2013, with support from a majority of district ratepayers. Over the past year, we’ve enhanced our work in downtown to keep pace with the area’s growth. We now employ more than 120 ambassadors, we’ve extended our daily hours of operation and added additional cleaning equipment. From leaf cleanup to graffiti removal, a few key statistics are captured below.
