Community Benefit Improvement District 

Print
In July 2014, the property owners of downtown Redwood City voted to approve the creation of a Community Benefit Improvement District (CBID) that is known today as the Redwood City Improvement Association (RCIA).  The property owners created this association to fund special benefits above and beyond normal city services for the district to keep the downtown attractive, clean, safe, orderly, and well-publicized.  The assessments, approved by the property owners, are collected as part of their yearly property bills and are then given to RCIA, a non-profit organization, to advance the District’s goals and priorities.  To learn more about the Redwood City Improvement Association visit their website here.
