Proposed Fishtown KENSINGTON Area BiD
The Steering Committee of this proposed Business Improvement District has always strived to be inclusive and respectful of the community as we developed our plan to bring improvements to our area. In this spirit, we have expanded our name to the Fishtown Kensington Area BID and our final BID Plan and Ordinance will reflect this change.
In the summer of 2018, area residents, business and property owners and others came together to explore creating a Business Improvement District to plan and fund services to improve and preserve our neighborhood.
Using the results of the BID Survey completed by 529 respondents identifying services that would be the most beneficial for the community, the Steering Committee has drafted our BID Services and Budget, which was presented for feedback and Q&A at 2 community meetings before being submitted to City Council. Please be advised that owner-occupied homes and condos would not pay an assessment.
Before the end of summer we will send all affected properties a packet with a copy of our Final BID Plan and Bylaws, hold one more Community Meeting in September (date TBD), and appear before the Rules Committee in City Council in October (date TBD) for our Public Hearing where all are welcome to offer testimony. More info coming soon.
We look forward to hearing from you and continuing to receive feedback. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
