Citrus Label Signs
These eye-catching crate labels were like 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.
Physical Improvement Program (PIP) Grant
The PIP Grant is the a major program with an annual budget allocation of $20,000. The grants allow businesses to make exterior improvements to their storefronts such as painting, signage, parking lot resurfacing, window repair, exterior security cameras, landscaping, etc Grants covers 50% of the cost of improvements up to $1,000 per fiscal year (November 1-October 31).
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.

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 supplies 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
