Business Improvement District Board

 

Downtown Infrastructure and Streetscape Plan
 
In August 2009, the Business Improvement District Board of Directors conducted a Downtown Study.  This Study was based upon results of a downtown survey which was posted online, noticed in newspapers, mailed to a sample of 678 resident households (153 responses; 23%), given to 62 students, and 18 downtown businesses were interviewed personally.  A grant from the Pokagon Fund made this study possible.
 
The results from this Downtown Study were used by the Business Improvement District (BID) Board of Directors to create the BID's Downtown Streetscape Plan, completed January 2010.
 
The City has used the research of this Plan to get grant funding to pave South Whittaker Street in 2014.
 
Downtown infrastructure and streetscape is a priority of the City Council.

Board of Directors

The Business Improvement District (BID) and its Board of Directors were created on January 21, 2003, by resolution of the City Council, pursuant to Principal Shopping and Business Improvement Districts:  Act 120 of 1961.

The BID Board of Directors regularly meets the second Thursday of each month, at 8:00 AM Eastern Time, at City Hall.  It is important to check the City calendar to confirm meeting dates, times, and details.

All meetings are open to the public and are accessible.  Persons requiring auxiliary aides and services or other accommodations should contact the City Clerk's office.

The BID has five members on its Board of Directors; their names and terms are to the right.

The BID Board of Directors may be contacted through their administrative support staff member, Assistant City Manager Ryan Fellows, with the contact information to the left.
