The Lower Polk Community Benefit District is an award-winning local nonprofit that was formed in 2015 by Lower Polk property owners, along with the strong support of our highly-diverse local community. Our shared mission is to make the Lower Polk a better place for residents, workers, and visitors.

Our vision is:

  • A clean and safe neighborhood with places to gather and congregate, including public or open space;

  • A neighborhood that is welcoming to diverse populations and reflects a mix of businesses that offer goods and services that meet the needs of the residents of the neighborhood;

  • A neighborhood that promotes art and culture;

  • A vibrant and viable neighborhood commercial district with flourishing small businesses and a community-friendly atmosphere;

  • A neighborhood appearance that reflects the local history and culture.
