Capital Crossroads and Discovery Special Improvement Districts were created by property owners in Downtown Columbus to provide services that support a safe, clean, vibrant, and welcoming downtown. Property owners in each special improvement district (SID) fund the program through assessments, and the board of trustees determines the focus. The map of both SID boundaries can be found here.
Capital Crossroads SID focuses on safety, cleaning, landscaping, homeless outreach, economic research, Downtown C-pass, and the Markets at Pearl. Discovery SID focuses on safety, homeless outreach, economic research, first-floor graffiti removal, and creative placemaking. Each SID employs ambassadors to patrol the streets and provide assistance, information, and a reassuring presence in Downtown Columbus
