  • To actively support the businesses in the BIA area.
  • To work cooperatively within the local community.


  • To actively represent local businesses to the City.
  • To provide support to events that occur in the area which bring focus to business.
  • To promote the business area locally and to visitors through special events, programs and advertising.
  • To maintain the business area as safe, clean and attractive.
  • To facilitate a caring community.
  • To actively participate in municipal tax policy development within the community and with other organizations.
