OHIO CITY: This upcoming neighborhood has six new faces on the street to spread good will.
The ambassadors work 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. (and will stay until 3 a.m. on weekends starting this summer).
You'll recognize them by the red uniforms, and their friendly demeanor.
The Special Improvement District, which falls under Ohio City Inc., is paid for by business owners in Ohio City.
The ambassadors are there for customer service: to help people with directions or information.
They're also ready to clean up trash, and power wash sidewalks.
One of the most important responsibilities is safety. The ambassadors act as the eyes and ears for Cleveland Police, keeping an eye on parking lots, and looking out for suspicious activity.
They work directly with Cleveland Police, and have an officer to contact, should trouble arise.
Downtown Cleveland's ambassador program has proved successful for the city in the last few years.
Now, Ohio City is hoping to continue its growth as a revitalizing community, with the help of the ambassadors.
