Also on Monday evening, the City Council will hold a public hearing regarding the annual assessment of the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID). The BID, which was created in 1979, works with Downtown San Rafael merchants to promote economic vitality and to advocate around issues such as parking, safety, and cleanliness. Assessments range from $25 to $425 per year, depending on the type of business and their location. This staff report also includes the 2019 BID Work Plan, which focuses on the goals and strategies the BID plans to take during 2019 to continue to support Downtown San Rafael.
