• Business Improvement Districts


    A business improvement district (BID) is a special purpose district created by a City at the request of area business owners, under the power of Wisconsin State Statute 66.608.  A BID serves the businesses of the area by carrying out a variety of activities including, but not limited to: advertising, event planning and marketing, design planning and assistance, streetscape improvements and business recruitment and retention.

    The City of Racine currently has three active BIDs which serve their business area by highlighting the unique and distinctive characteristics of the neighborhood and businesses.  For more information on current or potential BIDs please contact Devin Sutherland at devin@neighborhoodmanagementsolutions.com or 262-634-6002.
