Maintenance Ambassadors

Maintenance: (907) 277-0141

Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
*Except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day

The Maintenance Team provides supplemental services for downtown Anchorage within the approximately 120 blocks of the DID. Maybe you have seen them on the street picking up trash, responding to graffiti, or at one of the many events that take place throughout downtown. Maintenance Ambassadors provide services designed to:

  • Maintain a clean, attractive and orderly downtown.
  • Ensure downtown Anchorage as the best place to live, work, shop, and play.
  • Provide assistance for public space maintenance issues.
  • Serve as Ambassadors of downtown for visitors, residents, businesses, and property owners.
  • Partner with public entities in enhancing our community-based quality of life.

The Maintenance Ambassadors are easily recognizable in their orange workwear and work 5 days a week to enhance cleanliness and aid in snow removal within the DID. The entire DID is cleaned daily on foot or with various maintenance equipment, including trucks, RTVs, tractors, Sweepsters, Honda four-wheelers, and numerous other walk-behind sweepers, snowblowers, and vacuums. The Maintenance Ambassadors also utilize Community Work Service workers to maximize both perceptions of and actual cleaning in the DID. In addition, the Maintenance Ambassadors established partnership with Veterans’ Industries and Assets, Inc. that have allowed ADP to reintegrate veterans into the workforce and to provide an avenue for Alaskans with disabilities to solve their employment needs and live independently.


Our Maintenance Team provides clean up services throughout the DID, including graffiti removal, sidewalk sweeping, and trash pick-up.

Power Washing

The Maintenance Ambassadors will power wash areas in downtown that need to be cleaned. A part of our job is making sure that downtown is clean from spills, waste and dirt.

Gravel Sweeping

Our maintenance team performs sweeping services to get rid of all the winter gravel and stones on your sidewalks or parking lots. This service is available throughout the summer and fall for general property upkeep.

Weed Abatement

Our maintenance team can take care of those pesky weeds continuing to lurk around your property. We use a safe, non-toxic solution to eliminate weeds, and keep them from coming back.

Graffiti Reporting Process

Working in close cooperation with the Anchorage Police Department, Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. Safety & Maintenance Ambassadors are trained to spot and report graffiti. We also encourage downtown property owners, business owners, and residents to assist in keeping downtown graffiti-free. If you see graffiti, please call the ADP Shop at (907) 277-0141. Our goal within the Downtown Improvement District is to have graffiti removed within 24 hours of its appearance.
