What is a BID?

A Business Improvement District (BID) is a self-assessment area established and managed by property or business owners to provide enhanced services above and beyond what the City provides all residents or businesses. The Oxnard Property Based Improvement District (PBID), was established by Downtown Oxnard property owners in 2001. The BIDs are legally established by State of California legislation (Streets & Highways Code) and approved by the Oxnard City Council.


ODMD is not a membership based organization. You are a stakeholder of a BID by virtue of the location of your business or commercial property. Please click the link below to see the map illustrating the ODMD boundaries.
