Business Improvement Areas

Also known as business improvement districts in some parts of the country, business improvement areas are public-private partnerships. Business owners in a business district or part of a business district agree to pay an additional tax to fund neighborhood improvements and marketing efforts.

Improvements can range from sidewalk enhancements to parks and private security.
