Clean Streets

The Golden Triangle BID works to make the neighborhood a clean and attractive place for area workers, residents, and visitors. Its clean streets program provides specialized services, which contribute to the neighborhood’s quality of life and economic success. The BID partners with government agencies and utility companies to ensure the public space is appropriately maintained.

The BID also provides a full range of maintenance and landscape services for all seven of the parks in the neighborhood.

The BID regularly reports items to the city to ensure a safe and clean environment.

Each item is cataloged, reported, and tracked until it is completed, including:

  • Tree health
  • Paint for crosswalks and travel/turn lanes
  • Alleyways
  • Flex posts and paint for bike lanes
  • Traffic lights and walk signals
  • Street lights
  • Potholes
  • Hazardous sidewalks
  • Missing, broken, or unclear signage
  • Clogged catch basins
  • Construction projects
  • Rodent and vector concerns
  • Issues and concerns within the National Parks

Every spring and fall, the BID paints:

  • Light poles and light pole bases
  • Bike racks
  • Newspaper corrals and condos
  • Parking meter bases
  • Sign posts
  • Utility and traffic boxes
  • Fire hydrants
  • Connecticut Avenue underpass

The Golden Triangle also works with building owners to install additional bike racks and newspaper corrals. On an as-needed basis, the Golden Triangle also manages its stock of 199 garbage and 78 recycling cans to refurbish or replace cans. As the Golden Triangle improves the public space throughout the neighborhood, through its various initiatives and planning efforts, it takes on the responsibility of maintaining these projects. This includes public art installments and landscaping efforts like Art on CallRain Gardens, the Connecticut Avenue MedianDuke Ellington Park, and more.
