Community Benefit District: Downtown

The City of Santa Rosa currently has one community benefit district (CBD). The Downtown Santa Rosa 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 paying the assessments.

The Downtown Santa Rosa CBD is approximately 25 square blocks consisting of 159 parcels owned by 118 property owners shown in the map below. Property owners have the right to dissolve the district at any time.

The Downtown Action Organization is a non-profit that has hired the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber (SRMC) to manage the program. To view past and upcoming agendas, as well as an overview or the program, please visit the SRMC website:
