The most visible element of the Clean and Safe programs of the Business Improvement District (BID) is the men and women in purple uniforms known as the BID Street Team, aka the “Purple People”. The BID has had a measurable impact on the 18 block district as evidenced in not only a cleaner and safer district but in a friendlier downtown. It is not uncommon to see a member of the BID Street Team handing out parking tokens and directories, giving directions or a personal escort, or helping a homeless individual to a resource agency. The team is committed to achieving a higher standard in the delivery of services offered in the BID work plan.
