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.

Q2 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 April – June 2022; a quarter marked by the return of Georgetown French Market and new C&O Canal boat tours, transportation news regarding the former Exxon gas station site, and completion of the Water Street NW streetscape project  – among other initiatives. The BID strategic planning is underway this summer and fall. We plan to establish KPIs to measure and report on the impact of the BID’s work.
