Downtown Districts

Downtown Districts

Our service to downtown business districts easily remains the bread and butter of what we do. This includes working with Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Special Improvement Districts (SIDs), Property Based Improvement Districts (PBIDs) and beyond.

No matter what type of organization we work with, we know that the frontline, uniformed Ambassadors are often the most outwardly recognizable aspect of our customers’ organizations, and we don’t take this responsibility lightly.

Since we began serving our first district in 1995, our continued curiosity and ambition have allowed us to build upon the traditional services of “Clean and Safe.” As we removed the graffiti and became proficient at the daily grind of litter, while at the same time making millions of people feel safer through the presence of Safety Ambassadors, we never stopped looking for “what’s next”. This mindset helps our districts address street-level challenges while at the same time focusing on helping customers capitalize on opportunities.

At a time when claiming to be an “industry leader” is a dime a dozen, Block by Block has kept its head down, looking for the next best process, tool, or service idea to better serve our Downtown Districts. Whether it’s an initiative from our headquarters in Louisville, bringing our customers together for our annual Connect and Share Events, or adding new elements to our Ambassador University, we never stop trying to create more value for our customers and a better experience for our employees.

We believe it is this culmination of a can-do attitude, resourcefulness and ability to remain engaged with our customers that have allowed us to keep evolving the services we provide our customers, while further establishing our reputation. Check out our Case Studies from Bay Ridge and Long Beach to see how we deliver for Cities and Municipalities.

What our Customers are Saying

Word on the Street

Block by Block was one of those transformational organizations that worked with the city leaders to really change the way our city went about running.

-Louis Straub

Louisville Downtown Management District

With Block by Block you have the resources to do the job your city needs. Without that national network of professionals, I think you lose a lot. And I think you gain a lot by having it.

-Tom Turner

Nashville Downtown Partnership

Working with BBB for the past 10 years has been an exceptional and successful partnership. In creating Boston’s first BID we wanted to make sure we got everything right and BBB provided the experience and expertise we needed. Their senior management team is top notch and the training our Ambassadors receive is solid and constantly being updated to meet current and unexpected challenges.

-Rosemarie E. Sansone

Downtown Boston BID

Of all the vendors we had to choose from, Block by Block was by far the best choice for downtown. Not a month goes by that I don’t talk to my Operations Director and say we made the right choice.

-Kathleen Rawson

Downtown Santa Monica

We switched to Block by Block several years ago and the difference to our Avenue was obvious right away. Their attention to detail, the ease in communication with staff and management and the commitment to quality work is so appreciated.

-Mark Caserta

5th Avenue Park Slope BID, Brooklyn, NY

These guys really know what they’re doing. The benefits of working with a company that has both a clean team and a safe team has been fantastic. We love Block by Block!

-Ellen Riotto

South Park Business Improvement District
