What is a BID?
A Business Improvement District, or a BID, is a specific
geographic area established in accordance with New York State and
City law which enables local property owners, business owners and
residents to finance supplemental services and improvements beyond
those provided by local government.
How will a BID benefit
The members of the BID Board
of Directors determine its budget and services. Business owners and
property owners cooperatively address problems such as street cleaning,
graffiti removal, marketing, holiday lighting and security. The Flatbush
Nostrand Junction BID will also undertake supplement security and
sanitation programs, and promotion (e.g. street fairs, advertising,
holiday decorations), storefront improvement and technical assistance
to BID members. These services and improvements are in addition to
and not a replacement of current city services.
