Moving Sacramento Forward

Since 1995, Downtown Sacramento Partnership has served as the voice of downtown, led the revitalization for the urban core, and has been a driving force in moving Sacramento forward. Our mission drives us: Make Downtown Sacramento a better place to live, work, play and invest.

Downtown Sacramento Partnership is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of the central business district. The Property Based Improvement District (PBID) provides a unified voice for the 176 property owners and over 400 retail businesses located within the 66-block district. Together, the constituents work for the advancement of downtown by strengthening relationships with local and regional governments and citizen-based organizations in a public-private partnership.

Our History

Downtown Sacramento Partnership was established by property and business owners in 1995 and was the first PBID in the state of California. It was established as a proactive private sector initiative to provide an enhanced level of service for Downtown Sacramento and initiate economic development and marketing initiatives. Since its inception, downtown property owners have renewed the PBID three times in 2000, 2005 and 2015 with 90% approval ratings.



Downtown Sacramento Partnership oversees the maintenance, safety and revitalization programs financed by the 66-block management district. The district is roughly bounded by H Street to the north, 16th Street to the east, N Street to the south and the Sacramento River to the west. The 66-block district is located within the central business district C-3 zoning area. The district’s six benefit zones include the Civic Center, Old Sacramento, Capitol Mall, Entertainment District, Theater District and The Kay District.
