A Business Improvement District (BID) is a program whereby business and property owners come together as a collective group to increase the economic development and revitalize the neighborhoods and community they service. Formed as a partnership between the public and private sectors, merchants and property owners within a Business Improvement District create a budget, define services to be provided, and ultimately fund these additional services through a special assessment which is voted on and agreed to by those in the district.
Providing Services To Make Our Towns Cleaner, Safer and More Beautiful to Work, Live & Shop!
The South Shore BID has placed 20 new trash cans across The District to keep our towns cleaner. In addition, it has enlisted private sanitation which services the towns three times a week.
In an effort to keep business owners, residents and customers safe, The South Shore BID recently installed security cameras in the town of Great Kills. It will roll out additional cameras in the towns of Annadale and Eltingville over the next several months.
Our towns are beautiful, and The BID is working to ensure they stay that way. Welcome banners, events, and beautification projects are just a few ways the BID is working to make our District more appealing to businesses and patrons alike.
