ABOUT COLLEGE AREA BUSINESS DISTRICT

The College Area Economic Development Corporation, commonly known as “College Area Business District” is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. We serve as a small business advocacy organization meeting the needs of the business owners and commercial property owners in our district. The District boundaries are El Cajon Boulevard between 54th Street and 73rd Street, on Montezuma Road north of El Cajon Boulevard and College Avenue north of El Cajon Boulevard up to and including the businesses on San Diego State University campus.

Organized in 1996, the College Area Business District manages contracts with the City of San Diego for the Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) and the Business Improvement District (BID). Under the Maintenance Assessment District, we are responsible for maintaining the aesthetics within the boundaries of the College Heights MAD (El Cajon Boulevard between 54th Street & 73rd Street).
Our organization is governed by a 17 member volunteer Board of Directors elected annually by over 700 business owners and commercial property owners. The Board oversees all activities which are guided by the various committees and carried out by staff.
