Physical Improvement Program (PIP) Grant

The PIP Grant is Arlington Business Partnership’s major program with an annual budget of $20,000. The PIP Grant program allows businesses to make exterior physical improvements to their business. The grant covers 50% of the cost of the improvements up to $1,000 per ABP’s fiscal year (November 1-October 31). Some eligible improvements include exterior painting, new signage, parking lot resurfacing, new windows, security cameras/lighting, landscaping, etc.




Citrus Label Signs

These eye-catching crate labels are  mini-posters, depicting life and events surrounding the packinghouses that used them. Labels blanketed the country during California’s citrus heyday from the mid-1880s to 1955 and can now be purchased for your home or office; view our price menu now. As an added benefit, Arlington BID businesses may choose to install 4’ x 4 ‘ to 8 ‘ x 8’, labels on their business storefront  for FREE.   We have a large catalog of available labels to choose from.

Current Capital Projects

Monument Signs

We are welcoming all to come Live, Shop and enjoy in the Arlington Business District.


Past Capital Projects


We’ve put up some beautiful murals in the Arlington Business District.  One of the biggest considerations is whether or not a building has a wall that’s visible and large enough to accommodate it.  In one case, we even took an empty lot and made it more appealing by installing a Historic Fence.

Large Mural at the corner of Van Buren Boulevard  and Magnolia Avenue.

  • Keyes Building – 3761 Van Buren Blvd.
  • Anaya Building – 9529 Van Buren Blvd.
  • 9506 Magnolia Ave.


Bus Shelters

In order to appeal to the unique and historic aspect of the Arlington Business Improvement District, Arlington Business Partnership worked in partnership with several agencies to install five shelters that replaced the basic bench at each location.  These sites were chosen based on ridership information supplied by the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA).  ABP and RTA continue to work together in maintaining these beautiful bus shelters.

Shelter locations are as follows:

  • On Magnolia Ave., near Jackson St.
  • On Van Buren Blvd., near Magnolia Ave.
  • On Van Buren Blvd. , near Lincoln Ave.
  • On Magnolia Avenue, near Hughes Alley
