The Hollywood Village Initiative is a proposal to start a property-based business improvement district (BID) that spans the length of Sunset Boulevard between La Brea Avenue and Fairfax Boulevard. Forming the BID will create a cohesive district within our community that together, will physically improve the area and convey its unique and historic identity. The BID will be known as The Hollywood Village, a name that references its proximity to the larger Hollywood Entertainment District, and its quaint architecture and feel. To begin, we must gather support from 51% of property owners within the district to agree an added measure on the next ballot for a nominal increase in property taxes, that averages between 1.5% and 2%. These funds will be controlled by a district-created property owner’s non-charitable non-profit alliance, that alongside the landlords, will allocate funds to such things as district security, street cleaning, and neighborhood beautification. 

Our neighboring BID, the Hollywood Entertainment District receives an average of $3.4 million annually. What’s more, during their recent BID renewal process last year, the Hollywood Entertainment District was reinstated for another 10-year term with a 97% voter approval rating. Currently, the HED BID provides private security and maintenance services to keep the district clean and safe, and markets the area to promote investment. The HED BID is one of the newest property-based BIDs in Los Angeles and has served as a fundamental component of Hollywood’s continued revitalization.
