The mission of the Historic Core Business Improvement District is to improve the quality of life of residents, property and business owners in Downtown LA’s Historic Core through clean, safe, and enterprise programs.

The HCBID is paid for by local tax assessments. Whether you are a loft owner or own an entire building, your contribution keeps the neighborhood cleaner and safer, helps local businesses grow and thrive, and gets our neighborhood noticed.

> Clean Programs: Our partner Chrysalis is a non profit which employs individuals who are chronically homeless or otherwise financially challenged. These individuals are the men and women in green shirts and bright vests working hard every day sweeping, cleaning sidewalks, and emptying our trash cans.

> Safe Programs: Universal Protection Services guards go through a rigorous training schedule before working in partnership with LAPD to patrol our streets by bike, foot beat, and segways, at all hours of the day and night.

> Beautification: Holiday Decorations, additional Street Lighting, trees and planters are just some of the many ways we add life to our area.

> Marketing and Economic Development: Our social media is updated regularly to highlight the Historic Core to residents and visitors alike.  We work to promote our district through events, ribbon-cuttings, and marketing materials like our Historic Core Walking Guides.  Our focus is everything from art, galleries, and fashion retail to food , beverage, and hospitality.
