On November 16, 2016, the City of Palm Springs adopted Ordinance 1903 (available below). The ordinance established the Palm Springs Small Hotel Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID). The district was established to promote tourism and fund programs that benefit hotel/motel businesses with our community. These efforts and activities include, but are not limited to: public event promotion, advertising and marketing, brochure development, and public relations.
In order to accomplish these tasks, the ordinance calls for a 1% assessment on room revenue. The boundaries of the TBID are citywide, but the assessments are limited to hotels of 49 rooms or less. The levy of the annual 1% assessment takes effect January 1, 2017.
