North Park Assessment District Survey

We are looking to continue the additional services that North Park Main Street provides with the Assessment District that was voted into place by property owners in 2018.  We are asking you to participate in this survey because you are in the district boundaries or in a possible expansion area for the district.

Property-based Assessment Districts are a stable funding source for organizations of property owners working to improve their district. Owners within the district work together to make significant improvements, attract tenants and new businesses, and develop the area.

Assessment Districts can have many functions, all of which are aimed at improving the district.  Programs and services are determined by the property owners funding the Assessment District.  Activities often include security services, clean-up and maintenance services, landscaping programs, homeless outreach, business recruitment and retention programs, and many other significant progressive projects.

Since 2018, North Park Main Street has led the way to achieving solid improvements for the District, as is the intention of the organization.  For a full view of our efforts, review our annual reports or our Management District Plan to view the programs and services of the current district term.

Please take a moment to complete this survey - your input is what will make the North Park Assessment District a success!
