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.
Q4 2022 BID Snapshot
One of the Georgetown BID’s 2022 goals is to share more frequent, quarterly snapshots with our members that capture some of the key metrics and initiatives of the past three months. In this two-page report, you’ll find a summary of our work from October – December 2022; a quarter marked by the return of Georgetown GLOW, talk of a Georgetown dining renaissance, transportation news regarding the Water Street Trailhead, and the Georgetown BID Board of Directors’ strategic planning process.
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.
