Parking & Business Improvement Area (PBIA) Assessment


The PBIA is the assessment mechanism that allows the City of Santa Barbara (City) to provide affordable parking rates to customers, visitors and clients of the Downtown area. The Downtown Parking budget is funded primarily by hourly parking revenues, and to a lesser extent, by PBIA assessments and permit sales. The PBIA revenues are directed solely towards hourly employee salaries and utility costs. These funds partially finance the operation and maintenance of the parking lots.

If your business is located within the PBIA 53-square block area of lower State St., it is subject to a quarterly assessment. The amount to be paid is based on the type of business and parking related criteria. You will receive a separate invoice quarterly for this assessment.
