What is a Business Improvement Area (BIA)?

BIAs are a specific geographic area within a municipality or city that is designated to promote and improve the local business environment. BIAs are typically formed by local businesses and property owners collaborating to enhance their area’s economic vitality and overall appeal.

The primary goal of a BIA is to foster economic development, attract customers, and create a more vibrant community.
