(NPMS) is a member-based, non-profit organization formed in 1985 for the purpose of revitalizing and marketing North Park’s commercial district. NPMS is led by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of business and property owners. Professional economic development staff carry out the organization’s day-to-day operations which include programs and projects designed to improve local business conditions. “Some of these activities include: organizing special events and marketing campaigns, fostering member communications and public meetings, guiding streetscape improvements and beautification projects, and providing technical assistance and public advocacy on behalf of the district’s small business owners. NPMS is under contract with the City of San Diego to manage the Business Improvement District (BID) whose boundaries run along the primary commercial corridors of University Avenue and 30th Street. The BID includes more than 600 North Park business members who each pay an annual assessment that helps to underwrite the work of NPMS. NPMS leverages these annual fees to provide a notable return on its members’ investment in the community.
