Community Benefit Districts

A private-public partnership to fund improvements and get customized support in select neighborhoods

Community Benefit Districts (CBD), also known as Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), strive to improve the quality of life on commercial and mixed-use corridors. Each district is a partnership between the City and local communities. Local property owners vote to become a CBD and agree to pay an assessment. A nonprofit created by the neighborhood distributes the funding for various improvements.
