Updated 4.20.20 – Keeping Downtown Clean and Safe: DDI Critical Clean and Safe Services During the COVID-19 Crisis

The Downtown Dallas, Inc. Field Operations Teams, the Downtown Safety Patrol and Clean Team, remain on the streets, working for our stakeholders, seven days a week during this difficult and unprecedented time. Keeping Downtown “clean and safe” is always our number one priority, and now it is more important than ever.

By nature of what we do, DDI has several tiers of emergency response plans. Though no one could predict what is happening in our world today, we have been able to quickly adapt with what we define as Tier 3 modified operations, which includes:

    • Active patrols from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. daily. The dedicated off-duty Dallas Police officer funded by DDI is also patrolling Downtown 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. daily.
    • Downtown Safety Patrol and Clean Team members working as one team, prioritizing tasks related to safety, cleaning, and sanitizing.
    • Our teams are requesting compliance on social distancing and educating homeless individuals about resources and self-care.
    • Utilizing our fleet of “gem cars” (carts), T3s, and vehicles to maximize coverage and visibility
    • Sanitizing high-touch surfaces, such as handrails, trash receptacles, non-removable public furniture, and door handles repeatedly throughout each day. Special care is being given at all of our Downtown parks.
    • In accordance with City policy, we have removed all moveable furniture, turned off electrical outlets, locked dog runs, and wrapped drinking fountains to ensure everyone’s safety and encourage social distancing.
    • We will continually monitor these hours according to data from activity logs, See Say Now app reports, field observation, and stakeholder feedback.
    • If you need to report an issue related to cleanliness or safety, please call dispatch at 214.741.1151 or use the See Say Now app during these modified hours of 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
    • If an urgent issue arises outside of our operating hours, please direct needs to 911 or 311, as appropriate, otherwise we will prioritize response to overnight logs at the beginning of each shift.

Downtown Dallas Spotlight – Local Restaurants Offering Take-out and Delivery

COVID-19 might have you stuck at home, but these Downtown businesses are here to serve you during the current norm.

By Downtown Dallas, Inc.

Even if you run out of toilet paper and paper towels, you don’t have to go hungry. Social distancing has become standard over the Coronavirus outbreak and, let’s admit it, we miss going out to eat.

Leave it up to these local restaurants to fill the void. And these establishments religiously follow CDC guidelines when it comes to meal preparation. Stop by – or get delivery – to one of these places to make your sheltering in place tastier and more fulfilling.

Even better, we recently partnered with the City of Dallas to provide hooded meters and signs throughout Downtown to make supporting our local restaurants easier and more convenient!
