Community Benefit Districts

The City of Santa Rosa currently has two community benefit districts (CBD). Each CBD is a special assessment based on property square footage and street frontage that property owners pay to enhance services such as: 

  • addressing safety & homeless problems 
  • maintaining sidewalk cleanliness
  • improving landscaping
  • installing decorative amenities like lighting & seating
  • promoting & protecting downtown’s image
  • managing events at Courthouse Square
  • providing directional signs & services

The funds are controlled by an independent board comprised of property owners within each district paying the assessments.

Currently one CBD is appointed withing City limits and one is going through the process of being set up.
