Business Improvement and Neighborhood Improvement Districts

Business Improvement Districts (BID) and Neighborhood Improvement Districts (NID) are strong partners in the City’s efforts to develop strong commercial, residential and industrial areas of the City that create jobs and a higher quality of life in Milwaukee.  BIDs and NIDs are funded and operated by businesses, property owners and other community members located within each district’s defined boundaries. Scroll through to discover the more than 30 BIDs and NIDs that are working to make our Milwaukee neighborhoods great places to live, visit or open a business.  For a more simple BID and NID listing, please visit our Milwaukee BID & NID Directory.
