A new Business Improvement District is in the works for Court & Smith Streets. How’s it work? First, a group of local property owners, commercial tenants, and residents come together and set up an organization (the steering committee) which then draft the district plan. The second phase is to document local support. When enough local support has been demonstrated, the BID formation moves into the final, legislative phase. Right now the Court-Smith BID is nearing the end of phase two.
Next week there will be two events providing more information on the BID that will review the plan and answer any questions people might have. If interested in attending, check out of the sessions listed below. Both meetings are informal – people can show up whenever they want and have a drink on the steering committee’s tab.
