Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District Assessment Fee

The Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District is funded through an assessment on property within the Community Benefit District’s boundaries. Assessments are based on linear frontage, lot size, building square footage and building use. The formula for determining individual assessment fees can be found in the CBD’s Management Plan. The CBD receives its information on linear frontage, lot size, building size and building use from the San Francisco Office of Assessor-Recorder. This information for each assessed property within the CBD’s boundaries is provided, by APN, here. It is the responsibility of each property owner to ensure that the information provided to the Castro/Upper Market CBD, from the Assessor’s office is correct. To correct information on your property contact the Office of Assessor-Recorder directly. The contact information for this office is provided below.
