Yerba Buena Community Benefit District Seeks Board Candidate Applications

The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District (YBCBD) is now accepting for board membership. The YBCBD Board of Directors oversees the management of the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District. The board is structured to ensure representation from all stakeholders and areas of the district. The board has a maximum of 28 members representing community organizations, residents, non-profit arts, government or education institutions, or commercial merchants. Board members include those that do and do not own property in the neighborhood.

All YBCBD board seats are held by the entity, i.e. business, organization, etc., not the individual person designated to fill the seat by the entity. In the case of the resident seat, however, the individual resident holds the seat. Entities are asked to designate a representative and an alternate to attend meetings. Residents are also asked to designate an alternate. Board terms are 3 years and members may serve up to 2 consecutive 3-year terms.

The YBCBD Board of Directors meets 5-6 times a year and is very actively involved in the organization. All Board members are expected to serve on at least one committee.


The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District is funded primarily through a special assessment paid by property owners in the district. The organization’s mission is to advance the quality of life for residents and visitors in the Yerba Buena neighborhood on an ongoing basis by fostering a safer and more secure community, enhancing environmental quality and beauty, and reinforcing the viability of the economic base.
