Downtown Business Improvement District

Earlier this year, 70% of downtown property owners voted to support the formation of a new Santa Paula Downtown Property Business Improvement District (PBID).  Though the collection of a property-based assessment, the PBID will finance activities and amenities that will improve Santa Paula’s downtown corridor and enhance the experience for residents and visitors to the downtown.  The PBID will be formed for a 3-year period, starting January 1, 2020 and will be governed by a volunteer board of directors.  Assessments will be levied for the 2020 calendar year and invoices will be sent out in early January under separate cover. 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to facilitate growth within the downtown community and utilize resources efficiently. 

Downtown revitalization will be achieved through:

  • Focusing on developing local business
  • Improving and renewing infrastructure
  • Increased marketing and visibility
  • Keeping the streets safe and clean
