Management District Plan Summary 


The assessment will not be managed by the City of Oakland. It will be collected from private property owners by the Alameda County Tax Assessors' office and routed through the City to a new non-profit that is being established with the sole purpose of implementing the Management District Plan. Day to day operations will be managed by a professional team that will be hired upon completion of the establishment process and oversight will be provided by a Board of Directors.



Cleaning and maintenance services include graffiti abatement, landscaping, trash and dog waste removal throughout JLID including the I-880 underpasses. Safety programs include guides, coordination with the police department and other government and private security agencies. Marketing & economic development services includes supporting existing events, along with business recruitment strategies, support for the “Free B” shuttle, and promotion of a “train quiet zone”. JLID will strive to create a unified voice to promote the interests of the district.



The budget for JLID’s initial year of its ten-year operation is going to be $767,426 including $60,000 for contingency and collection fees. The district’s non-profit board may increase the assessments annually based upon Alameda County’s regional CPI index or by a maximum of 5% of the previous year’s assessments.



Parcels have been assessed using the following formula:   

Zone No. Lot sq. Ft. Bldg. sq. Ft. Street frontage Floor area sq. ft






Zone 1











In addition to the four property variables used in Zone 1, benefit zones are used to determine the frequency and types of benefits received. Assessments will be reduced by certain factors in each Zone as follows:

Zone 2 35% of total assessment calculated above   

Zone 3

35% of total assessment calculated above



The JLID will have a ten-year life beginning January 1, 2014. After ten years, the petition process, ballot process and City Council hearing process must be repeated for JLID to be reestablished.
