Board

Business, Residents and Government Working for a Better Bethesda
Bethesda Urban Partnership is governed by an 10-member board of directors drawn from the business and residential communities that Bethesda serves. Funding for urban district activities comes from a special tax on properties within the urban district, fees from the parking lot district and charges to "optional method" real estate developers for maintenance services. Sponsorships for Bethesda UP events and activities are also important components of our funding mix.
