Capital Crossroads SID

Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District (SID) formed in 2001 with the goal to help make downtown the cleanest, safest and best place to live, work and play in central Ohio.

Like other SIDs (Special Improvement Districts), Capital Crossroads SID property owners agree to pay for our services and determine our focus.

Capital Crossroads SID employs safety ambassadors, special-duty police officers, a homeless outreach specialist and a safety coordinator. But it doesn’t stop there. Through a public-private partnership, the SID facilitates real-time communication with safety professionals throughout downtown, which focuses on a holistic approach to crime prevention.

In addition, the SID wants to do its part to support downtown business, so we employ a business recruiter who provides valuable resources to entrepreneurs looking to open a downtown business. We also focus significant marketing efforts to promote our downtown businesses, and we produce multiple newsletters to keep everyone up to date about the cool things happening downtown.

While you’re downtown,  take a look at the way-finding signs and the many beautiful planters along Capitol Square and High Street. We had a hand in that, too.

That just scratches the surface of what Capital Crossroads focuses on to keep our downtown one of the best places to live, work and play. If you have questions or just want more info about downtown, give us a call.
