FISHTOWN AREA BID MEETINGS
In July 2018, the Fishtown Co business association, Fishtown Neighbors Association and New Kensington CDC co-hosted an Intro to BIDs Community Meeting at The Fillmore. More than 70 attendees listened to a presentation on BIDs and participated in an interactive Q&A Session. From that group and the Fishtown Co Board, a Steering Committee was formed and began meeting in September 2018.
As the BID Plan develops there will be a minimum of 2 large Community Meetings, one of which was held in April 2019, to get feedback on the plan and make any needed adjustments, and a third meeting when the BID ordinance is introduced. The Steering Committee will also continue to meet monthly, please see below for upcoming meetings, presentations and minutes, as well as other opportunities to learn more about the BID.
