If I own a commercial property or business within the Central Avenue Business District can I choose NOT to be a member of the CASID, NOT pay the SID Assessment, and, you know, still enjoy the benefits of doing business on Central Avenue?

No. Your business does not begin and end at the front door and being part of a main street community is not a spectator’s sport. As stakeholders, each business and commercial property owner must contribute to, and share in, the responsibility of managing the district. The geographic boundaries of the SID are established by City Ordinance and changes will require collective decision-making. Anyone who does not wish to be part of the SID can always choose to relocate outside the SID boundaries.
