17 Sacramento Area Property and Business Improvement Districts

Last Updated 12/23/2023

Earlier in the year, we published a guide to Main Street's and Downtowns in the Sacramento-region to help locals and visitors find more great places to explore. Here, we wanted to introduce Sacramento-area Business Improvement Districts (BID).

If you're not familiar, a BID is a region where the businesses or property owners pay a tax to fund projects and general improvements to strengthen the community for mutual benefit.

Our company tagline is "Main Street for the 21st Century" which means we exist to support the companies and nonprofits that are integral to their communities with our Local Connection technology and educational materials.

Get out and explore the great business districts and communities that we have around us in the Sacramento-region.

Are you involved with your local BID, Main Street/Downtown, Chamber or another local group?

Stockton Boulevard Partnership

Have you noticed Stockton Boulevard is looking a lot better and cleaner lately?

That's because our District Maintenance Crew assigned to pick up litter along the Boulevard is hard at work. You'll recognize our crew by the bright colored safety vests they wear as they go about their clean-up tasks daily.

The Streetscape Improvement Project brought 100 new palm trees, new medians, curbs, gutters and sidewalks on both sides of Stockton all the way from Broadway to 65th Street. 

With the help of Sacramento Regional Transit District, there are new trash receptacles at each bus stop. The Boulevard is looking better and better… less garbage and improved amenities.

The SBP is actively and aggressively working with law enforcement to make this area a safer place to work and shop. 

Excerpt from Stockton Boulevard Partnership Facebook page.

R Street Corridor

The R Street Corridor is a 27-block long, two block wide special planning district within Sacramento’s Central City Community.

Part of the excitement behind R Street’s emergence as a vibrant and distinctive district rests in the area’s unique history as the State’s first railroad and industrial corridor. Many brick buildings, landmarks, and street elements still reflect the former rail based business activity that existed for over century.

Now, instead of warehouses and industrial shops, R Street’s historic structures are now home to some of the best dining, cocktails, entertainment, art and design that Sacramento has to offer.
