If you are one of the many people calling downtown Albany home, you will certainly be pleased with the various services and standards that add to the quality of life for this neighborhood. The City of Albany and Downtown Albany BID work diligently to maintain this district as a safe, clean and inviting place to call home. Residents may often notice the dedicated beat officer for this neighborhood, who has built a rapport with merchants, property owners, employees and visitors, further promoting the district’s friendly and safe environment.

The Downtown Albany BID’s Clean Team Ambassadors work to remove litter from sidewalks, walkways, crosswalks and curbs. During the winter, Team members keep intersections and cross walks free of snow. This seven-day-per-week program is designed to complement the efforts of the city’s Department of General Services.
