Our Downtown SLO Ambassadors work Monday–Sunday to ensure that our downtown is clean, safe, and welcoming to visitors — whether they’re living, working, shopping, or exploring downtown.
Ambassadors provide cleaning services for the sidewalks and alleys within the boundaries of our 24-block service area. This includes, but is not limited to, the removal of trash, graffiti, stickers, and messes (like urine, feces, and vomit.)
Additionally, Ambassadors are out on the streets connecting our community — whether that's providing directions, recommending restaurants, answering questions, or giving resources to unhoused folks.
Downtown Ambassadors often report potential dangers or active emergency situations to the police, fire department, or emergency services. We partner with local community organizations like CAPSLO to ensure that individuals are given the proper care.
This program supplements, not replaces, the City of San Luis Obispo's work by bringing additional improvements to downtown’s appearance and offering more resources for the local community and visitors to the downtown area.
