SOUTHSIDE AMBASSADORS EXTENSION

Project Description

Project Details

Since January 2017, the Southside Ambassadors have provided “clean” services to the extension area from Taylor Street to Hayes Street along the Fourth Street “4 Blocks International” business corridor, in addition to the north-south side streets between Third and Fourth Streets in this area. From January through December 2017, the Ambassadors removed 29,098 pounds of trash from the extension area, and removed 39 instances of graffiti, made 292 contacts with business owners, and provided 429 instances of hospitality assistance. A community meeting was held in to gather feedback and provide information to the extension area community about the Southside Ambassadors program, and resident and business owner responses were overwhelmingly positive.
