Due to parking revenue shortfalls from the <br /> pandemic, our Security Team was partially unfunded in 2021, but is returning as soon as <br /> possible due to critical need as they typically provide an average of 1,900+visitors given <br /> directional assistance and 5,200+calls for security service. <br /> New to the program in 2022 is additional partnership with the City where the Clean and Safe <br /> program will assist community events with cleanup and street closures as well as the addition of <br /> helping maintain the public space parklets created for outdoor dining areas during the <br /> pandemic. <br /> Quarterly Clean and Safe Meetings are held between downtown stakeholders and the City staff <br /> to work on issues and opportunities and review expenses, policies and capital improvements <br /> generated from the parking revenue. <br /> We commend the ongoing work of the Clean and Safe Team and look forward to continuing this <br /> critical program in partnership with the City. <br /> Sincerely, <br /> Michael A.
