All Business Improvement Areas are run by a volunteer Board of Management. This Board is elected by BIA members and are nominated at an Annual General Meeting. The elected Board of Management is then approved by City Council. The approved Board of Management will serve a four-year term concurrent with the term of Council.
The Board of Management works on behalf of its BIA, meeting regularly to develop budgets, set priorities, plan festivals, implement capital improvement, and promote its business area.
BIA Boards are composed of public directors and City Councillors. The public directors are elected by the BIA membership and recommended to the Community Council.
The Board of Management are responsible for beautifying our streets, marketing and promotional campaigns, organizing street festivals, and crime prevention strategies. The BIA also acts as a unified voice to address issues on behalf of their membership.
The board is comprised of individuals who are philanthropic by nature and are passionate about giving back to their community.
