Italian Market BID proposal FAQ

South 9 Street Business Association Philadelphia PA

For the last year, we have been working as an Advisor to the South 9 Street Businessmen's Association as they lead an effort to establish a proposed Business Improvement District in the Italian Market, a lively commercial district within walking distance of our home office

As one of the two consultants working on this project with a terrific and highly involved Steering Committee, there has been unprecedented outreach to the diverse business owners in the district. We wrote the Frequently Asked Questions about BIDs. Check the website for all South 9 Street BID work 

www.south9washington.com. We also were highly involved in the preparation of the proposed BID plan. see it here.

All written materials and website have been translated into four languages (Khmer, Vietnamese, Mandarin, and Spanish) and translators have been present at six public meetings to explain the proposal. We are now at the end of the outreach phase and hope to move on to the legislative phase soon.
