Business/Economic DevelopmentUPTOWN ASSOCIATION
Historic Uptown Property Owners Association
On June 23, 1997, the City Council adopted a resolution establishing a Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) known as Yucaipa Village Square Management District #1. On July 13, 2009, the City Council adopted a Resolution establishing a second Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) known as Yucaipa Village Square Management District #2. PBIDs have been used successfully in over 250 commercial districts throughout California to increase sales, attract new tenants, increase occupancies, and stabilize property values. The purpose of the Districts is to provide a funding mechanism for levying assessments on properties located within Districts #1 and #2 in order to fund ongoing monthly utility costs for landscape irrigation and area lighting as well as some costs of maintaining this landscaping unique to the Uptown area. District #1 includes properties located along California Street between Yucaipa Boulevard and Avenue B and District #2 includes properties along Yucaipa Boulevard between Bryant Street and 2nd Street.
The Yucaipa Village Square Property Owners Association (“Association”), in concert with the City of Yucaipa, is responsible for the ongoing day-to-day management and administration of the Yucaipa Village Square Management Districts #1 and #2. The Association is a non-profit corporation formed by property owners located in the Yucaipa Village Square Management District #1 and #2. The annual programs, budgets and assessments for the Yucaipa Village Square Management District shall be determined by the Association, who shall also serve as the PBID “property owners association” described in State PBID Law. This Board is responsible for the general oversight of the District including approval of the annual work programs and budgets, monitoring performance, and ensuring compliance with appropriate rules and regulations, including the PBID management agreement with the City of Yucaipa. This Board generally meets on a monthly basis. When related to PBID matters, such meetings are subject to the State of California “Brown Act” open meeting requirements. Records of this Association pertaining to PBID related matters shall be available for public review as stipulated by State Law. Pursuant to State law, the Association Board shall file, for approval by the City Council, an annual report for the upcoming year for which assessments shall be levied.
