Business Improvement District Association
What is the Business Improvement District Association (BIDA)? The BIDA is a property based Business Improvement District that was formed by the local businesses and property owners to improve the downtown business district of Rialto. The BIDA is a public/private sector partnership through which the property owners within the specified district/zone agree to assess themselves for improvements, activities, management functions, and which provide special benefits upon real property for which the improvements and activities are provided. These property based tax assessments are not for the general benefit of the City.
As a legally standing organization, we serve as an advocate for the business district by formulating and conveying recommended public policy positions on matters affecting the District. We provide a structured framework for participants within the District to take advantage of economies of scale, especially as they relate to joining marketing, advertising, and promotional campaigns.
