Arts District Los Angeles

The Arts District Los Angeles Business Improvement District (ADLA) works tirelessly to ensure the neighborhood is clean, safe and ever improving. Reestablished in 2014, the Arts District BID is a 501(c) 3 non-profit managed by the Arts District Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is made up of large, medium and small property owners and community stakeholders. ADLA’s full-time staff manages the day-to-day operations of ADLA’s initiatives and programs.

The primary function of ADLA is to keep the neighborhood clean and safe. The ADLA Executive Director—Miguel Vargas–works closely with the City to implement the Arts District Los Angeles Management plan.

Essentially bounded by the 101 Freeway, 7th Street, Alameda, and the Los Angeles River, the Arts District is home to the Sixth Street Viaduct, Joel Bloom square, 3rd & Traction, the Factory Place complex and is adjacent to the Metro’s Gold Line Regional Connector Station and Union Station. The ADLA safety Team patrols 24 hours a day, seven days a week while ADLA’s Clean Team provides street maintenance services on a daily basis during business hours.
