Community Benefit District (CBD)

Local governments need additional capacity and partnerships to manage walkable, vibrant areas like downtowns or town centers. However, most cities and towns struggle to keep up with basic services and lack the ability to effectively develop, market, and govern these exciting places. Community Benefit Districts (CBDs) solve that problem through a local public/private/nonprofit partnership managed by a non-profit 501c3 entity. Parking districts can also be part of the solution.

To learn more and explore whether CBDs or parking districts might be right for your community, please contact Andre Leroux at andre@ma-smartgrowth.org or Larry Field at larry@ma-smartgrowth.org.”
