Our Plan is twofold but very simple. Funding for ADCC will come from two sources; Assessment dollars and Fundraising dollars.
Assessment dollars are paid by Arts District property owners through property taxes. Assessment funds will be used to pay for the cleaning and weeding of the streets, patrolling of the neighborhood and a small staff to administer the program…nothing more.
The budget for assessment funds is ascertained first by the need and then the costs of facilitating a substantive cleaning and security program.
Fundraising dollars are raised by the organization on behalf of the neighborhood. Fundraising sources include Federal, State, City and private grants. These funds would pay for services not included in the assessment program. Services can range from the maintenance of public spaces, to art competitions to festivals.
