The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, and the CAP team is ready to spring into action! CAP keeps downtown safe all year round, but as the spring season approaches, they are adding a few more things to their list of duties! From pressure washing the streets to making sure all the new landscaping going in on 20th Street stays in tip top shape, CAP is ready to make sure that Downtown Birmingham is looking better than ever this season. Here’s what you’ll see our team in blue (or sometimes yellow – check out those new jackets they’re rocking!) out and about doing.
Keeping downtown's flora in bloom
As the construction on 20th Street nears the finish line (which you can find out more about by clicking here) we are beginning to put in the finishing touches. This includes things like lane painting, outdoor furniture, and of course some landscaping. And who better to look after the blooming flowers than our CAP team? You can find them downtown looking after the local flora and making sure it stays in bloom through the spring season and beyond!
Spraying away those stubborn weeds
The CAP team wants to make sure that downtown is always looking its best – and that means no overgrown weeds! You’ve probably seen some of the ambassadors out and about with their weed sprayer. This helps keep the weed growth under control and maintains Downtown Birmingham’s natural beauty!
Washing away all your worries
Another important step in keeping downtown looking better than ever is breaking out the pressure washer every once in a while! With all the traffic that comes through downtown it’s an important part of the CAP team’s duties to wash the streets every once in a while, in order to keep it looking bright and beautiful.
And of course, the CAP team still offers all of their standard clean and safe services like:
- Safety patrols
- Security escorts
- Directions & helpful information
- Street outreach
- Litter patrols
- Graffiti removals
You can call CAP for service at 205-251-0111 follow them on social media @CAPisDowntown!

One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
Woof, woof! I’ve been having an absolute blast visiting my sister in Downtown Birmingham. I can hardly wait to share all the details with you once you return from your vacation. In the meantime, I wanted to put paw to paper and tell you all about it, with the hope of convincing you that moving Downtown could be the most wonderful decision ever.
