Welcome to the Main Street District!

Benefits from the Main Street CID


What does the CID do?
As the concierge of the Main Street district, the CID:

  • Works with the Prosecutor’s Office and the Kansas City Police Department to keep nuisance offenders off the streets
  • Removes graffiti quickly, often before the morning rush hour
  • Keeps the public right-of-ways clean of litter and debris
  • Assists with snow removal from public walkways
  • Maintains streetscape improvements
  • Helps the community when needed

How will I know the CID is present?
You will see the “Red Shirts” patrolling and working in your area. There are two types of “Red Shirts” that will be in your neighborhood:

  • Area Maintenance Attendants: AMA’s provide daily litter removal, landscape maintenance, snow shoveling from crosswalk and handicap areas, graffiti and poster removal, and assistance to neighborhood residents and visitors.
  • Area Awareness Officers: AAO’s provide on the street monitoring, reporting, assisting with medical emergencies, detouring illegal or suspicious behavior, and serving as on-street assistance for visitors, customers and residents of the area.

Meet the Red Shirts!
