Economic Development

The success of large and small businesses directly contributes to a clean, safe, and vibrant community. To facilitate that success, our team helps owners of new businesses navigate the complex processes of permits and construction; we promote and support existing businesses; we partner with brokers and leasing agents to attract new businesses; we advocate for better transit and pedestrian infrastructure; and we work with the City and developers to ensure new projects benefit the community at-large.

Our Mission

The mission of the South Park Business Improvement District (SPBID) is to continually support the unique living and commerce experience for its residents and businesses by facilitating a safe, clean, collaborative and wholesome environment, while leveraging the opportunities that arise due to its location and role in the historic transformation of DTLA.

About the BID

Nestled in the Sports & Entertainment District, SPBID manages a 52-block area containing the STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE, Los Angeles Convention Center, California Hospital Medical Center, and the Pico Metro station.

Our Clean and Safety Teams, who are easily recognized by their signature forest green South Park uniforms, patrol South Park 24-hours a day, seven days a week to ensure a positive experience for visitors and residents.

A Board of Directors, made up of South Park property owners and stakeholders, oversees the management of the BID. The full-time management team leads day-to-day operations including: security and maintenance of our streets, coordination with local developers, interaction with our valued residents, and business support services. The Board of Directors also works closely with city agencies in carrying out the City of Los Angeles-approved South Park BID Management Plan.
