Do you work, live, or own property in Chinatown? We need your input!

We are conducting a Property Based Improvement District (PBID) Feasibility Study for the Chinatown community. If you have a moment. Please take this survey to help us determine what services are important to you if a PBID were to be developed in Chinatown. Please note that information is only being solicited for the feasibility study and formation of a PBID is not guaranteed.

Project Summary: The City of Fresno is conducting a feasibility study regarding the development of a Property Based Improvement District (PBID) in the Chinatown neighborhood. This project is funded by the City of Fresno and will be working concurrently with the TCC infrastructure improvement projects in Chinatown. A feasibility study will determine whether the property owners are interested in standing up a management district for this area. The study will help develop potential boundaries and services that could be funded through the PBID and set up a framework for moving forward with the formation of the PBID if recommended through the study. The property owners will ultimately determine if the PBID is a viable option for Chinatown.

Details: Plan to set up a Property Based Improvement District (PBID) in Chinatown to complement the TCC infrastructure and housing projects in Chinatown. The project will fund a PBID feasibility study to identify and assess property owners in Chinatown, set up a framework for the PBID District Formation, and create a draft Management District Plan. Project goal is the formation of a Chinatown PBID District through a public hearing and ballot process.

If the recommendation is to move forward with creating a PBID for Chinatown through the feasibility study, then we will move forward with a public hearing and ballot process for the formation of this Property Based Improvement District.
