About Us

The Business Improvement District (BID) Division administers the Business Improvement District program. A BID is a geographically defined area within the City in which property and/or business owners vote to pay an assessment to fund programs and projects within the district's boundaries with the goal of improving commerce. These districts typically fund services which are supplemental to those already provided by the City, including cleaning streets, providing security, making capital improvements, construction of pedestrian and streetscape enhancements, marketing, and increasing economic development and livability. The Division facilitates the establishment and renewal of BIDs in accordance with state and locally mandated policies and procedures. In addition, the Division administers the related BID Trust Fund which collects $65 million annually through assessments on behalf of the BIDs. There are currently 38 property-based BIDs and five merchant-based BIDs established citywide.
