The Grand Avenue Merchants Association
Lake Merritt Business Association
Lakeshore Avenue Business Improvement District
The Lakeshore Avenue Business Improvement District was the first BID in the City of Oakland. In 1998 the property owners on Lakeshore and later Lake Park Avenues joined together to form this non-profit by voting to assess themselves additional fees. The BID uses the assessments to fund daily sidewalk and gutter cleaning, monthly steam cleaning, gardening in the tree wells and some larger plots, daily private security, promotions and events (four times a year), and staffing/advocacy for the merchants and property owners in conjunction with neighborhood organizations.
The Lakeshore Ave BID Advisory Board meets regularly. Merchants regularly attend the meetings. The Advisory Board invites community input and would be happy to consider a new community or merchant member. Please call or email Executive Director Pamela Drake for more information on Advisory Board meetings and other BID updates (510.451.1257 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
