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 2, 2021, the BSBA Board of Directors voted to recommend to the City Council approval of the 2021-2022 BSPBIA Annual Report (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 the continuation of the assessment. The Annual Report proposes no change to the BSPBIA boundaries or the method of levying the assessment.

The Annual Report, transmitting the recommendations of the BSBA, proposes the following assessment rates.
