Mpls DID enhances downtown's outdoor experience by providing clean, green, safe, and better services throughout the 120+ block district. Each year, DID removes over 30,000 bags of trash, assists over 80,000 pedestrians, installs and maintains more than 15,000+ plants and monitors public area cameras everyday of the week. The district is divided into two service level areas: Premium (orange) and Standard (blue). These areas were determined based upon the level of pedestrian activity and the resulting need for intensity of services.
In addition to core services, DID also oversees the maintenance and activation of Nicollet, collaborates on unique projects that create vibrancy, and addresses important social issues.
