The Georgetown BID has supported and enhanced Georgetown’s commercial district – both on the street and behind the scenes – since 1999. We periodically look back to remind ourselves and our members of everything we are doing and have done to serve our members. We’ve pulled together a snapshot of the BIDs day-to-day services, one-time projects, annual events, and long-term initiatives over the last 10 years (FY2012 – FY2021) – driven from the ground up by the member feedback we solicit, which informs the priorities reflected in our annual strategic plan and budget.
Below is the FY24 Georgetown BID budget that was passed at the last meeting of the Board of Directors on 9/21/23.
This year’s Annual Report shares how the BID and our members significantly recovered from the worst of the pandemic, and continued to push the neighborhood forward. It highlights key accomplishments and commercial district developments in the areas of economic development, public space enhancements, street services, transportation, and marketing and events programming from October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022. From new Canal boat tours, to the return of signature events, and 25 businesses opening, we’ve never been more optimistic about Georgetown’s future.
The BID has developed this mid-term (6-12 month) commercial district recovery plan of 32 action items, in collaboration with the BID Board, BID members and community leaders, to guide the our work through the end of 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic.
