TITLE
Recommendation to receive supporting documentation into the record, conclude the public hearing, and adopt resolution continuing the Belmont Shore Parking and Business Improvement Area assessment levy for the period of October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021; and, authorize City Manager, or designee, to extend the agreement with the Belmont Shore Business Association for a one-year term.

DISCUSSION
The Belmont Shore Parking and Business Improvement Area (BSPBIA) was established by the City Council in 1983, allowing for the levy of an annual business license assessment to be paid by businesses located in the BSPBIA. The City of Long Beach (City) contracts with the Belmont Shore Business Association (BSBA) to manage the BSPBIA and the BSBA Board of Directors serves as the Advisory Board to the City Council on matters related to the BSPBIA. The BSBA promotes and markets the commercial area along Second Street using funds generated through the BSPBIA business license assessment.

State law governing Parking and Business Improvement Areas requires that an Annual Report be submitted to the City Council by the Advisory Board designated for this Assessment District. On August 21, 2020, the BSPBIA Advisory Board voted to recommend to the City Council approval of the 2020-2021 BSPBIA Annual Report (Exhibit A to the Resolution).

The Annual Report describes boundaries, proposed activities, and budgetary information, as well as the method and basis for continuation of the assessment. The 2020-2021 BSPBIA Annual Report proposes no change to the BSPBIA boundaries or the method of levying the assessment. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BSPBIA Advisory Board has tentatively canceled all special events until May 2021. Special events are normally a significant portion of the BSBA’s annual program. If special events are cancelled for the May through September 2021 period, the BSBA budget may be reduced by corporate-sponsored non-district funds.
