For Merchants and Citizens

We understand that filming activities in Santa Paula can be great fun or a great hassle, we hope you find it to be great fun! Filming is an important source of revenue for the city, and it can be a great source of extra income for local merchants and citizens. With that in mind, we want filming to be the best possible experience for all involved, including Santa Paula merchants and citizens. If you have a question or concern, please contact us as soon as possible.

Merchants in the downtown area may have business disrupted by filming, so the Downtown Merchants Association has created the following documentation for merchants to help understand filming and for negotiation purposes with the film companies:

Exhibit B SP Recommended Compensation

Documento “B” Asociación de Comerciantes del Centro Recomendaciones de Compensación Comerciante para Santa Paula

For merchants that may not be directly compensated for filming, due to distance from the filming or other circumstances, the Downtown Merchants Association also hosts two events every year to bring additional revenue into the downtown area:

Hot Summer Jazz & Art

Yearly Christmas Event
