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
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.
