About South Park Business Association

The South Park Business Association was first formed as the Greater South Park Association in 1980 in response to the City of Seattle's neighborhood plan for the area. The group actively participated in the planning process which eventually led to the first South Park Neighborhood Plan.

That group was active until 1986. The structure of the organization was maintained until 1996 when it was incorporated as a 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation - the designation for a business association that is active in civic affairs. The South Park Business Association has been advocating for South Park businesses and infrastructure improvements since that time.

The SPBA is a business and community resource that deserves your support and participation. The association has always advocated for all businesses in South Park, regardless of the size or type of business - or even whether they were members of the association. We are not an exclusive organization that only represents one class of business.
