Downtown is represented by the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (“NRBID” or the “BID”). Established in 2000, NRBID is a non-profit association of over 800 business and property owners whose prime goal is economic development, new business, and new investment. As part of its mission, the NRBID is also devoted to assuring clean and safe streets, adequate parking, and exciting Downtown activities and events.
NRBID receives its revenue from an annual assessment on all real property located within the boundaries of the NRBID, and through a combination of grants and sponsorships. We are governed by a 13-member board of directors comprised of NRBID property owners, local business owners, City representatives (as required by law), and residents.
