The Rosslyn Ambassadors
The friendly Rosslyn Ambassadors work hard, five days a week, to keep the sidewalks and pedestrian corridors within the 17-block BID boundaries clean by picking up litter, pulling weeds and removing graffiti and illegal signage from the public right-of-way. In 2019 our Ambassador team removed 191,835 pounds of litter and collected 26,125 pounds of recycled material which they delivered to the Arlington recycling center.
In 2019, the Amassadors provided 395 instances of Hospitality assistance and had 1,478 interactions with the public in which directions were provided. They also removed 28 graffiti tags around the downtown area.
Wearing purple uniforms, you can find the Ambassadors with a friendly smile and on the streets of Rosslyn, providing hospitality services that include giving easy-to-follow directions, listing things to see and do in Rosslyn and providing restaurant recommendations.
During the winter, the 10-member team engages in snow and ice removal from key areas to supplement Arlington County efforts and in summer months, they power wash the sidewalks throughout the BID.
Our Ambassador team works Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. If you have comments about the Ambassador program, please contact our Operations Director, Victor Carcamo, via email.
