Welcome Packet

Our role at the BID is to support your needs as a small business as best we can, from connecting you to city resources to offering free marketing and advertising for your

business, and everything in between.

 

Our BID Welcome Packet helps to introduce new business owners to our work and reacquaint existing businesses with the resources we offer.
