Management District Plan
Property owners within the PBID voted to implement a five-year Management District Plan that specifies how additional monies will provide supplemental services to areas within the district. The added service areas include: Security, Maintenance, Advocacy, Capital Improvements, Administration/Collection and Contingency/Renewal. Mgmt_Distrrict_Plan_ MDP 3-3-15 (1)

Additional security within the PBID has reduced crime 25% since January 2016 (“About Us,” n.d.). The addition of Palladin security’s daily patrols and dedicated hours by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Off-Duty Program have illustrated the value of increased district monitoring. The 24-hour private security hotline (916-331-3175) is an added bonus for property owners and tenants that require immediate assistance.
The purpose of the maintenance program is to preserve high standards for aesthetics within the district. The standards of cleanliness coupled with accessibility and general appeal keeps consumers returning to local businesses while attracting new, potential property owners. Maintenance services include litter and graffiti removal, sidewalk pressure washing, weed abatement, and median maintenance. This program supplements the maintenance performed by current property owners within their own respective business spaces.
Advocating for the constituents is a key tenet of the PBID. The district has a creative partnership with WEAVE (Women Escaping a Violent Environment). WEAVE is an active nonprofit group that provides a myriad of services for women working to create stability in their lives after living through difficult circumstances. This relationship benefits both the district and the specific population that WEAVE supports. WEAVE has graciously hosted two seminars explaining the presence of human trafficking and what steps can be taken to make the region a safer place.
The use of monies for Capital Improvements will assist with grant funding for various projects to enhance the value of the district. The recently awarded “Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT)” Grant by Sacramento County, invests $20,000 of matching funds to purchase more License Plate Reader Cameras for the district.
The California Highway Patrol and the Sheriff’s Department identified an area where potential illegal activity could occur along Winona Way and Myrtle Avenue. Supervisor Susan Peters’ Office volunteered to fund this median fence (acting as an extension of a current fence on Watt Avenue and Orange Grove) as a preventive measure for the district. Construction is tentatively slated for Spring 2018.
In addition to the 25% crime reduction within the district, the 80 Watt District also works closely with the County of Sacramento Sheriff’s Department and Code Enforcement to identify and implement strategies to efficiently tackle pockets of crime in the area. A few of the notable successes include: Identification of illegal dumpers, elaborate human trafficking stings, and targeted cleanup of trash throughout the district.
Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) partnered with the district to create a pilot program focused on improving the appearance and safety of the SacRT access point within the 80 Watt District. Based on the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Caltrans, the district’s overall goal is to clean the area a minimum of four times a year while adding landscaping; creating a calm space and discouraging illegal activity. A road adoption sign for 80 Watt District is placed on the Northwest ramp of I-80 and Watt Avenue acknowledging the PBID’s contributions to improving the space.
