Clean, Safe & Beautification Committee Initiatives


Learn more about the projects and initiatives that the Clean,Safe and Beautification committee has developed and put into action within the district and within the larger Germantown community.



Part of the services the GSSD will provide to the business corridor and community beginning in the Fall of 2017 are Avenue Ambassadors, which will work to promote a business and shopper positive experience within the district by creating an additional layer of security and safety for property, business owners and shoppers.  We've partnered with Faith CDC to manage this program and to assist with the oversight of the Ambassadors. Avenue Ambassadors will be tasked to do the following:

   1. Provide a visible presence to help deter loitering and crime

   2. Identify, notate and report graffiti to 311 and to the GSSD

   3. Assist the GSSD staff with identifying potential and suspected L & I, SWEEPS and other violations of business owner responsibilities for ordinances and laws related to trash and safety.

All Avenue Ambassadors will complete a training program that includes receiving instruction on maintaining safe corridors from the Philadelphia Police Department to ensure all property and business owners, shoppers, residents and students attending schools within our district are arriving to and from the area in safety.
