  • Annual Renewal Process
    • The NBRA BID was formed pursuant to the Parking and Business Improvement Area Law of 1989, codified in Streets and Highways Code Sections 36500 et seq., for the purpose of financing activities and programs to benefit businesses located and operating within the area. The NBRA BID area encompasses any food service business within the boundaries of the city of Newport Beach. Each spring, the Newport Beach City Council reviews the BID’s annual report and conducts a public hearing to levy member assessments in the new fiscal year (starting July 1). The public hearing provides members the opportunity to submit written and oral protests about the assessment or planned activities. If member protests represent less than 50 percent of the total assessment amount, the NBRA BID renewal is confirmed and levies assessed upon its members. If protests represent 50 percent or more of the total assessment, the BID renewal proceedings are abandoned.    
  • NBRA BID Three-Year Strategic Business Plan

  • Restaurant Week - The assessments collected from member businesses are used to supplement marketing of the annual Newport Beach Restaurant Week event.
