Washington Square Business Improvement District


The Washington Square Business Improvement District promotes land development and economic growth in the area. Since the creation of the District, there have been several new businesses that have moved into the Square with at least one of them directly benefiting from the Business Improvement District (BID). The Washington Square businesses have continued to promote the Square and to hold festivities and events that cater to the surrounding neighborhood and beyond.
