Downtown workers, visitors, and residents will notice a cleaner, safer, and friendlier downtown with the beginning of a new Clean Team Ambassador Service that has just begun. The continued growth and visitor traffic in downtown Winston-Salem fueled the creation of the Downtown Winston-Salem Business Improvement District (DWSBID) by the Mayor and City Council. The primary goals behind the creation of the DWSBID were to promote a cleaner and safer downtown environment, develop stronger marketing and promotional items, assist and promote accelerated development, and enhance the downtown physical appearance. The City of Winston-Salem has contracted with the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership (DWSP) to provide the programs and services that will meet these goals. "We are happy to have the Clean Team Ambassador program underway, said City of Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines. “We have had tremendous growth in pedestrian traffic and this program will be a big part of our continued success."
