MID History

Founded by the Downtown Seattle Association in 1999, the MID is financed through tax assessments on Downtown properties and, starting July 1, 2013, will cover a 285 square block area in Downtown Seattle’s core.

Each day, the MID’s 62 Downtown Ambassadors patrol the streets of the Denny Triangle, Pioneer Square, Retail Core, Waterfront, West Edge, and, beginning July 1, Belltown neighborhoods in order to maintain Seattle’s healthy, vibrant urban core.

Learn about the efforts and accomplishments of the MID from the past year by taking a look at our Annual Report.
