PLEASE RETURN YOUR RENEWAL PETITION BY APRIL 22ND!
The Central Avenue Historic District Business Improvement District (CAHD) 2021 Renewal Management District Plan (MDP) and Engineer's Report (ER) have been approved by the City Clerk providing authorization for the 2021 Renewal Petition Drive to begin!
50% plus $1 of the total assessment value must be supported by YES votes on the Petition forms received by APRIL 22ND in order for the City to approve CAHD’s 2021 renewal to move forward to a ballot measure in May. The 45-day ballot measure will be administered by the Los Angeles City Clerk per California Proportion 218 requirements. The City Clerk will mail out ballots to each District property owner to garner their vote to determine whether the BID will be renewed. The ballot measure will also require YES votes for 50% plus $1 of the total assessment value for the BID renewal to be approved.
The CAHD team is mailing the attached MDP and ER to all property owners and will directly contact property owners via email and phone to encourage the expeditious return of the Petitions. The completed petition forms can be scanned and emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to CAHD’s address on the form. A picture of the fully completed Petition form can be emailed as well. In order to be considered valid, all Petition forms must include:
The District comprise 130 property owners and 187 individually assessed parcels of land on Central Avenue between the south side of Vernon Avenue and the south side of Washington Boulevard as well as on the side street frontages of the corner properties.
The 2021 budget for the District is $142,544 less than the $430,204 2020 budget which reduces the amount each parcel in the District is individually assessed.
