Are business improvement districts forever? The groups, funded by local property owners, provide extra security and street cleaning, and lobby local government on a neighborhood's behalf, but "two of the largest downtown improvement districts are facing lawsuits from property owners who no longer want to pay their fees, which in some cases top $100,000 a year." In the Arts District, locals (including actor Vincent Gallo) have launched a "Rid the BID" campaign. [LAT]
