Mission & Membership

With more than 1,000 members, our organization’s mission focuses on keeping Georgetown clean, safe, accessible and economically strong. From marketing, communications and special events, to transportation, economic development, placemaking and streetscape, the Georgetown BID contributes to the vitality and quality of life in Georgetown. Governed by a Board of Directors elected by our membership, we’re proud of our role in the ongoing evolution of Georgetown as a world-renowned shopping, dining and visitor destination.

Any commercial property owner or tenant within the BID boundaries is automatically a member. There is no additional membership fee as the BID is funded through a BID property tax. The membership, comprised of property owners and tenants ranging from retailers and restauranteurs to architecture, technology, and professional services firms, are able to benefit from and participate in all of the programs and services offered throughout the year.
