Please help the
Maspeth Chamber of Commerce make Maspeth a B.I.D.
Making Maspeth a B.I.D. would greatly improve the quality
of life in the community of Maspeth and help the community
have easier access to services that support, improve, beautify
and enhance the streets, parks and public areas of Maspeth.
- What is a BID? -
|A business improvement district (BID) is a defined
area within which businesses pay an additional tax or fee in order
to fund improvements within the district's boundaries. Grant funds
acquired by the city for special programs and/or incentives such as
tax abatements can be made available to assist businesses or to
recruit new business. BIDs may go by other names, such as
business improvement area (BIA), business
revitalization zone (BRZ), community improvement
district (CID), special services area (SSA),
or special improvement district (SID). BIDs provide
services, such as cleaning streets, providing security, making
capital improvements, construction of pedestrian and streetscape
enhancements, and marketing the area. The services provided by BIDs
are supplemental to those already provided by the municipality.
