The Downtown Frederick Ambassador Program employs 4-6 full-time workers (depending upon the season) to monitor and clean the downtown area. Ambassadors work from 7AM-10PM five days a week (Wednesday through Sunday). The ambassador program covers more than 17 blocks of the downtown area – including Market Street, Patrick Street, Carroll Creek Linear Park and Everedy Square & Shab Row.
Ambassadors help keep Downtown Frederick a safe and beautiful destination by providing essential functions, such as actively engaging pedestrians with friendly greetings and assistance, providing directions and information to visitors, picking up trash and power washing sidewalks, removing graffiti and stickers from light poles and other public infrastructure, collecting leaves and debris from sidewalks and gutters, pulling weeds in public spaces, and so much more! Downtown Frederick Partnership contracts with Block by Block to provide this service.
