A Business Improvement District (BID)
For A Safer and Cleaner
Let's work together to make Coney Island cleaner, safer & more vibrant!
We, the Coney Island Business Improvement District (BID) Steering Committee, are a diverse group of long-time local property owners, business owners, residents, and community members with decades of shared history investing in and advocating for the Coney Island neighborhood. We are seeking your support for our proposal for a BID for Coney Island’s commercial corridors along Mermaid and Surf Avenues. This proposal is the outcome of over a year of stakeholder engagement and thoughtful deliberation, and represents our shared vision for a cleaner, safer, more vibrant neighborhood.
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
A Business Improvement District (BID) is a private/ public partnership in which property owners and commercial tenants make a collective contribution to the maintenance, development and promotion of their commercial district. Currently, there are 76 BIDs in NYC, with 23 right here in Brooklyn. BIDs provide programs and services in their own community, increasing commercial business and solidifying the overall strength of their district.
BID programs may include: supplemental sanitation, maintenance, beautification, streetscaping (holiday lighting, trees, flower boxes), community marketing, small business promotion, public safety, city and state advocacy, tourism services and much more.
