Centro PID

While we are champions for all of downtown, our primary job is to manage the Public Improvement District. The PID covers about one square mile encompassing the most iconic, exciting and historic locations in our city, all of which weave together as the cultural, creative, and civic epicenters of San Antonio.


The Centro Alliance is an advocacy group composed of students, young professionals, artists, business and property owners, and community advocates standing side-by-side as part of a diverse coalition of volunteers in service of downtown.


This is the story of Downtown San Antonio. It’s the heartbeat of our people and the place from which we imagine our future. From our center, our vibrant story flows into every corner of our neighborhoods, businesses, homes, people, and city. Let us tell you our story.


You always have a friend downtown! Centro Ambassadors are the smiling faces that welcome visitors and residents to downtown, working tirelessly to make everyone feel like part of the community.


We seek to think big, have fun, get the right stuff done, and be good to others. Living by our values: community, courage, creativity, empathy and dedication helps us achieve this. Get to know us!
