In 2019, 70% of downtown property owners voted to support the formation of a new Santa Paula Downtown Property Business Improvement District (PBID). Through the collection of a property-based assessment, the PBID began financing activities and amenities that improved Santa Paula’s downtown corridor and enhanced the experience for residents and visitors. The PBID is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
