Healdsburg Tourism Improvement District
Developed by the Healdsburg Chamber of Commerce and the Healdsburg lodging properties the Healdsburg Tourism Improvement District is a benefit assessment district proposed to help fund marketing and sales promotion efforts for lodging businesses. The goal is to improve tourism and promote room stays, consequently growing the Transient Occupancy Tax which is used to fund the City of Healdsburg Community Services Department.
The Healdsburg Tourism Improvement District (HTID) was formally adopted in 2013. This assessment district includes all of the lodging properties within the City limits including hotels, motels, bed and breakfast lodgings and inns. The HTID assessment is 2% in addition to the Transient Occupancy Tax.
The Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) currently is 14%. The TOT collected is divided 10% for Community Services, which includes Parks and Recreation, the Senior Center and Foss Creek Community Center; 2% to Healdsburg Police and Fire Departments and 2% to the affordable housing fund.
www.stayhealdsburg.com is created by HTID.
Effective January 1, 2023, the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors will consist of 30% HTID Lodging Partners. The portion of each Chamber Board Meeting that discusses HTID business will be open to the public. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month, at 8:30 am at the Chamber office (217 Healdsburg Avenue). Please reach out to [email protected] for any questions.
