Share your feedback with Center City District

In order to address the new challenges of the last two years, CCD has expanded its clean and safe programs with new day and evening bike patrols, ramped up graffiti removal services and expanded its homeless outreach partnership with Project HOME, crisis intervention trained police officers and its own specially trained outreach staff who help those in need come off the street. CCD has added more trees and sidewalk planters, upgraded lighting, improved our parks and brought new entertainment and educational programs to Dilworth Park and Sister Cities Park.
