The River District Property & Business Improvement District (PBID)

The 830-acre Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) was established in 1999 by a broad-based coalition of public and private property owners. Managed by The River District, a 501(c)(6) nonprofit business association, the PBID is a special benefit assessment that supports enhanced services.

The PBID was approved for a ten-year term in 2014. The 2015-2024 Management District Plan outlines three categories of services to be provided by the PBID: public safety and maintenance; economic development; and planning, advocacy and physical improvements. The services and programs provided by the PBID are above and beyond those provided by the City and County of Sacramento. Click here to read the full 2015-2024 Management District Plan.
