Explore North Park Marketing and Outreach Program

The Explore North Park marketing and outreach program instills a unique benefit to the visitors, businesses, and residents of North Park. Through various marketing assets, including a website, social media platforms, and print materials, the benefits of working in, and visiting North Park are broadcast far and wide. Not only are these assets gorgeous, they’re also highly trafficked and have demonstrated success in sharing our neighborhood’s strong character and message across the country.

North Park Property and Business Improvement District (“NPPBID”)

The NPPBID or “PBID”is responsible for providing improvements, maintenance, and activities which constitute and confer a special benefit to assessed parcels in North Park. In English, this means a special assessment is levied on property owners in North Park to fund the PBID, and in return the PBID, managed by North Park Main Street, provides sanitation, landscaping, improvements, and economic development services.

Your Assessment Dollars at Work

The 2018 budget for the North Park PBID is $308,000. With this money our Board of Directors, an elected Board comprised of our North Park property and business owners, has identified several goals for our District. Activation and programming of the public space, outreach and engagement within the community, beautification and eliminating visual blight will be the focus of our plan. If you have ideas or want to help in these efforts, please join in on our committee meetings which are open to the public.
