South Park II BID
Property owners of the area located immediately east of South Park have been approved for the formation of a new Business Improvement District (BID). This new BID, South Park II Business Improvement District (SPII), bounded roughly by Olympic Blvd, the alley between Main/Broadway, the 10 freeway, and Margo (alley between Grand/Olive), will be managed by the South Park Stakeholders Group.
South Park Stakeholders Group is comprised of proportional representation from SPBID and SPII. Day-to-day operations will be directed by the current SPBID office.
