La Mesa Village Enhancement Fund Program

The La Mesa City Council established the La Mesa Village Enhancement Fund Program to support the business community and enhance the vibrancy of the Downtown Village by providing funding for non-profit organizations and businesses to conduct events, promotions, programs, or advertising activities within the boundaries of Parking District Number One.  A key program requirement is that applications for funding must demonstrate a community benefit to the businesses in Parking District Number One.  The program is funded from 50% of annual net parking revenues for each funding cycle of the program. For more information about the program, please refer to the Program Guidelines.
