City of Culver City

Welcome Hayden Tract Property Owners!

Over the last several years, the Hayden Tract has evolved from an industrial hub into a creative center home to some of the world’s most renowned companies. The Tract continues to attract creative companies and talented employees however the overall area provides few pedestrian and employee amenities.  The City met with a few property owners to discuss challenges such as parking, traffic, and mobility as well as other initiatives to elevate the aesthetic of the area and support the creative enterprises within the district.

Enhancements and improvements could include:

Green Spaces

Parking

Bike/Scooter Lanes

Sidewalks

Wayfinding/Signage

Traffic Circulation

Other?

One potential option to achieve these enhancements includes the formation of a Property-based Business Improvement District (PBID). PBIDs are used to fund capital, maintenance and operational expenditures in an area and are overseen by those who contribute to them. The City has engaged CivicMic to connect with property owners to understand improvement priorities as well as guide the potential development of a PBID in the Hayden Tract. The City is focused on the commercial area south of National Blvd. and East of Hayden Place and bounded by Ballona Creek. Please see a general map below. A brief survey, also below, has been developed to guide the exploration of a potential PBID.
