A Business Improvement District (BID) is a public/private partnership in which property and business owners elect to make a collective contribution to the maintenance, development, and promotion of their commercial district.
BIDs have helped revitalize neighborhoods and catalyze economic development throughout Milwaukee. BIDs deliver supplemental services such as:
Sanitation and Maintenance
Public Safety and Hospitality
Marketing and Promotions
All services are funded by a special assessment paid by property owners within the district. The City’s BIDs invest millions annually in programs and services for neighborhoods across the city districts.
