Clean & Safe Activity Report Q2 2015
As one of the first PBIDs in the state, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership (DSP) was created by downtown property owners who saw a need for downtown specific resources that went beyond the City’s base-line services. Their goal was to create a non-profit, business led entity whose mission is to establish downtown Sacramento as a vibrant destination for the benefit of residents, visitors, and investors.
As the foundation of the organization, the Community Services Department patrols the streets of downtown 7-days a week working to build a cleaner and safer environment. The department deploys the ‘boots-on-the-ground’ crew who are first responders to many issues surrounding the core, including being the ‘eyes and ears’ for law enforcement and emergency services, as well as maintenance and merchant relations for the district’s 66-blocks.
Tracking and monitoring daily activity for the Clean Streets team and the Community Service Guides allows the department to track trends and identify gaps in service. In the past year the Community Services Department has improved the environment of our urban core. In Q2 2015, the DSP:
- Assisted 16,000 visitors, employees and residents through the Guide program
- Removed more than 127,138 gallons of trash, debris, and leaves from Old Sacramento and Downtown.
- Removed more than 550 pieces of graffiti
- Responded to 621 nuisance and abetment calls for service
