Here is the Central Avenue Historic District
Assessment Fee Expenditure Plan:

I. Clean Streets

The budget includes funding to hire a team to manage graffiti removal, rubbish removal from the streets, power wash the sidewalks and to coordinate bulky item removal.

II. Safety Ambassadors:

Just like Downtown, Central Avenue will have safety ambassadors patrolling the District on bikes, greeting patrons and distributing brochures about businesses and events, helping patrons find the businesses and services they need and coordinating security efforts with property owners and the LAPD. The goal is to hire a company to retain a team of Ambassadors that can not only promote a safe environment, but also welcome patrons to Central Avenue.

The CAHD Board released the Request for Proposals (RFP) for its Safety Ambassador program on March 30, 2016 and would like to encourage Los Angeles based companies to submit a proposal. There is a mandatory pre-bid meeting on April 13, 2016 at 2:00 pm. Bids are due on May 4, 2016 @ 4:00 pm. Click Here to Obtain a Copy of the RFP.

III. Security Monitoring Program

We can use the new WiFi system installed on Central Avenue to install wireless security cameras on buildings to cover the sight lines on the Corridor in order to monitor activity. Projected for installation in August 2016.

IV. Branding Program

Cultural and historical brand identification will include creation of marketing logos, collateral and video promos about Central Avenue and street signage. The BID will promote businesses, sales and events through quarterly brochures, its website and social media pages. Funding will also be provided for 3-5 business promotion events per year. Branding strategy has commenced. The new website was launched in March 2016. Check it out: www.centralavenuehistoricdistrict.org

V. Parking Demand Management

Assessment of available parking on existing sites and vacant lots to facilitate the creation of additional parking spaces. An annual parking and business directory map will be created. Projected to commence in September 2016.

VI. BID Management Services

The CAHD board of directors will oversee the management of the BID's operations and retain consultants to promote and develop the Central Avenue Historic District brand and provide business development assistance to property owners and tenants. The search for team members will commence in April with the goal to have services in place by July 2016. The formation consultant, Urban Design Center, is serving as the interim BID manager.
