The Downtown Sacramento Partnership, an association of over 200 property owners is California's first-ever business improvement association. The partnership was established five years ago to promote downtown Sacramento as a destination. Steam washing sidewalks and streets under their "clean and safe" program, posting 20 visitor "guides" in the downtown area, and successfully lobbying City officials to focus development efforts in the downtown area are among the association's major accomplishments. Lobbying successes included securing a moratorium on multi-screen movie complexes anywhere but in the downtown district. The renewed Downtown Sacramento Partnership will be promoting the revived downtown area's attractions including the new IMAX theater as well as concerts, farmer's markets, and other activities in the recently renovated Cesar Chavez Plaza.
