Business Improvement Districts
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) offer the chance for property and business owners to join together and assess themselves money to be used for agreed upon improvements in their respective business districts. Based on the type of assessment district, collection methods and organization will vary. Assessments are collected either by the City, or by the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office, and all assessment revenue is passed through to the BID. This revenue is used for purposes described in each BID’s Management Plan. The City of Long Beach enters into agreements with business and/or property owner associations that utlize assessment revenues to provide services and improvements in BID areas.
BIDs have been known to use their funds for the following kinds of services:
- Business development
- Cleanup and maintenance
- Corridor beautification
- Special events
There are 10 BID areas within the City and fees vary by location.
