A Business District convenient to both downtown Long Beach and downtown Los Angeles; what’s more, it’s minutes from the Long Beach Airport and a half hour from Los Angeles International Airport and Orange County’s John Wayne Airport.
Bixby Knolls is having a renaissance with the help from the City of Long Beach and an active and engaged community of business owners and residents.
It’s time to rediscover Bixby Knolls!
The purpose of the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association is to promote the interests of its professional, service and retail members, to enhance the common areas within the BIA area, to facilitate the exchange of business information and ideas, and to promote the highest business and ethical standards.
How was the Bixby Knolls BIA formed?
The Bixby Knolls Parking and Business Improvement Area was created by Ordinance C-6646 on September 21, 1989 by the Long Beach City Council at the request of local business owners. Its activities are administered by the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association. Each year the City Council holds a public hearing and reviews the activities of the organization.
In the fall of 1993 the BIA became incorporated and received its nonprofit status, 501(c)6. The Association is governed by an elected, eleven member Board of Directors. The work of the Association is accomplished through voluntary committees and its Executive Director.
Each business in the District is assessed annually by the City of Long Beach and these funds are then returned to the BKBIA for activities focused on revitalization, promotion, street aesthetics, and security. The association is governed by an elected eleven member Board of Directors and association work is accomplished through voluntary committees working with an Executive Director and staff.
Our current boundaries encompass approximately 800 businesses located along Atlantic Avenue from 33rd Street to 46th Street, Long Beach Blvd. from the 405 Freeway to 46th Street, and Wardlow Road between the two corridors.
