Important information to our members who own property on the EAST side of Castro Street

There is an important information session regarding the proposed Mission Dolores Green Benefits District (MD GBD) this Wednesday, April 17 at 6:30 pm Dolores Park Church, 455 Dolores Street.  RSVPs are requested.


Most all of our EVNA members who live on the East side of Castro Street but not within the boundaries of the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District (Castro CBD) have been included within the proposed special assessment district to support the MD GBD.


Assessments are based on a combination of parcel area and building area and typically range from $1,950 to over $4,000 per lot for the initial duration of the GBD.  Assessments are shared for condominium lot owners.  There are no provisions for senior citizen exemptions nor pass-throughs allowed for rental properties. 

The EVNA Board has taken no position on the property owner election to establish the GBD.  Conan McHugh and Tom Shaub of the MDGBD formation committee briefed the EVNA Board of Directors at the February Board meeting, providing the general concepts involved in making the GBD a reality.  The Board concurred with the GBD Formation Committee on the process of engaging neighbors to evaluate the needs and benefits a GBD could bring to the neighborhood and is eager to provide a forum for our members to engage in meaningful discussion on the pros and cons of a GBD as proposed.
