The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is a strong proponent of business improvement districts (BID). The Chamber was the creator of the Hollywood Entertainment District, which became Hollywood’s first BID, and was very supportive of the formation of the other Hollywood BIDs. A business improvement district is a voluntary assessment district where the businesses or property owners vote to assess themselves a fee in order to achieve a common goal. Such goals typically include such things as: cleaning sidewalks, beautification, security patrols, and marketing the area. The assessment funds are collected by the City of Los Angeles and returned to the BID, which has a board of directors that administers the funds. Here are Hollywood’s four BIDs, and links where you can go for further information:
