What is the SDA?

The SDA is a 501 (c)(6) and is comprised of businesses within a Business Improvement District.

The annual operating budget to the SDA comes from a percentage of each Businesses License tax which is renewed annually by the businesses in the SDA District.

At the present time the SDA does not have a separate method for taking in members outside of the BID.

We welcome individuals to attend our meetings and volunteer in support of the well-being and beautification of Downtown Sebastopol.
