                        Business Improvement District


                        Who We Are

                        The Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District (BID) is a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the State of Colorado formed in 1999.  The BID encompasses a 49-block taxing district approved by downtown property owners to cultivate a cleaner, safer and more vibrant downtown community. The tax revenue is used by the BID to provide maintenance services that supplement those provided by the City of Boulder and to provide a comprehensive consumer marketing and communication program.

                        Marketing and Communications

                        The Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District markets and promotes the district to both consumers and investor audiences. These efforts include: advertising, branding, event marketing, banners, brochures, printed collateral materials, newsletters, public relations, social media, digital media and market research.



                        BID funding for operations and maintenance services throughout the district includes trash pickup, graffiti and sidewalk gum removal, snow shoveling, holiday lights, plant maintenance and banner program. The BID has an operations team working daily to maintain a clean and appealing downtown district. 

                        In Summer/Fall 2020, we formed a partnership with Bridge House's Ready to Work team to provide extra support in keeping downtown Clean, Safe and Inviting.
