DCBA Clean and Safe Charitable Fund

Melanie Bassett


mara red top meter (2)The Downtown Chico Business Association strives to cultivate downtown into a consistently safe, secure and clean community center for everyone to enjoy. Our top priority is to ensure that everyone has a good experience in Downtown Chico, day or night, and that they will return. We have been working closely with the Chico Police Department, Chico State University Police Department, the Chico Chamber of Commerce, the City and social service providers on a Community Policing Model that is underway and making a difference. It is a great blend of compassion and accountability.

As we work to identify sustainable funding, the DCBA’s “Beautiful, Clean and Safe” campaign continues to fund the successful Downtown Ambassadors: a citizen engagement group, where volunteers from the community serve as ambassadors walking downtown with a stewardship focus; Clean-Up Brigade: consists of four paid individuals, lifting themselves up and out of homelessness. They work downtown and in the surrounding parks, 6 days a week, 3-5 hours a day, making sure our merchants & patrons have a clean experience in Downtown Chico; and our Downtown Private Security detail, which compliments the Chico Police schedule year round.
