The DBA provides both “Environmental Enhancements” (Cleaning, Hospitality, Beautification, and Social Services Outreach) and “Economic Enhancements” (Marketing, Communications, Events and Business Support) for Downtown Berkeley. All our programs and services augment—not replace—service already provided by the City of Berkeley.

Our staff of approximately sixteen Cleaning and Hospitality Ambassadors regularly patrol and clean Downtown Berkeley to provide a more welcoming and vibrant Downtown Berkeley. We also provide landscaping and other Beautification services to enhance the resident and visitor experience in the Downtown.
