Clean Sweep Ambassadors
The Muscle Behind the Shine
Cleaning the Downtown Scene
Panning and brooming all 150 square blocks of BID #21, not to mention scrubbing, power washing and gum-busting the streets, are the tasks of Milwaukee Downtown’s Clean Sweep Ambassador (CSA) team. Helping to keep downtown Milwaukee litter-free and sparkling clean, this crew can be seen hard at work from sun up to sundown.
Beyond ensuring a spic and span downtown, the CSAs are behind the scenes assisting with downtown events. From installing over 28 miles of wire to light downtown for the six-week Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival to arranging picnic tables for guests to enjoy an outdoor concert series, the work of this team impacts impressions of downtown on a daily basis.
