The Downtown Development District is requesting proposals for sidewalk cleaning and public space maintenance.
Like other urban centers, Downtown New Orleans is in heavy competition for economic investment. While downtown continues its positive economic recovery, DDD acknowledges the challenges of urban centers today, including public safety, increased homelessness, disinvestment, and cleanliness.
Downtowns are still reeling from record-high vacancy rates because of the global pandemic. To attract new residents, retain young professionals, and grow our economy, we must offer a high quality of life and business-friendly climate. Greater attention must be focused on quality-of-life improvements that compel workers and companies to return to the office fully. Downtown New Orleans must provide a sensational public realm characterized by litter-free sidewalks, expeditious graffiti removal, and reliable and consistent sanitizing. An attractive public realm is vital to DDD’s economic prosperity strategy.
