Update on the Proposed BID

Prior to the pandemic, the NBR worked towards creating a Business Improvement District because it realized that there is a real need for enhancing the municipal services that it receives and create equity along the corridor. That meant more public safety or police services, more street cleaning, more marketing to help the corridor realize its economic potential, and strategic business retention and business attraction to not only bring businesses to the corridor, but help them grow.

However, in light of the pandemic and its devastating impact, the NBR Board of Directors voted to maintain the organization’s structure as a Voluntary Special Service District and incorporate the data and research obtained through the BID process into the next five-year strategic plan.
Programs and services include:

• Cleaning and Safety
• Maintenance and Greening
• Marketing and Communications
• Business Attraction, Retention, and Development
• Capital Improvements

In addition, the NBR will raise $591,000 to execute on these programs and the needs identified under the Needs Assessment Survey.

Additional Meetings to Learn More about the BID

Again, while the focus area for the BID will continue to be directly on North Broad Street , it’s important that we meet with neighboring community organizations so we can ensure the needs of the entire community are a part of our visioning process. As a result, the NBR has reached out to neighboring RCO’s to schedule additional meetings. If you are an RCO where your boundary includes portions of North Broad Street, you should have received an email. However, if you did not, please contact the NBR at 267-318-7772, or at, so we can schedule a meeting with your group as soon as possible.
