Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. provides additional services within the DID that complement – not replace – city services. That includes providing Security Ambassadors and Maintenance Ambassadors.
Maintenance Ambassadors (MAs) provide supplemental services for Downtown within the approximately 113 blocks of the DID. MAs provides services designed to:
- Maintain a clean, attractive and orderly Downtown.
- Enhance safety and security in Downtown.
- Ensure Downtown is the best place to live, work, shop, and play.
- Provide assistance to the Municipality for public space maintenance or public safety issues.
- Serve as Ambassadors of the DID for visitors, residents, businesses, and property owners.
- Partner with public entities in providing a community-based quality of life.
The MAs are easily recognizable and work 6 days a week to enhance cleanliness and aid snow removal within the DID. The entire DID is cleaned daily on foot or with the various maintenance equipment owned by ADP, including: ½ ton truck, Kubota RTV w/attachments, Kubota & Case tractors w/attachments, Sweepsters, Honda four-wheelers, and numerous other walk-behind sweepers, snowblowers and vacuums.
The MAs also utilize Community Work Service workers to maximize both perceptions of and actual cleaning in the DID. In addition, the MAs established partnership with Veterans’ Industries and Assets, Inc. that have allowed ADP to reintegrate veterans into the work force and to provide an avenue for Alaskans with disabilities to solve their employment needs and live independently.
If you need assistance, please call the MAs at 277-0141
