Chattanooga Business Improvement District Board Seeks Input Online And On Tours

Thursday, February 27, 2020

The Chattanooga Business Improvement District board of directors is seeking input from district stakeholders and the larger community on beautification projects, deferred maintenance and trouble spots through walking tours and an online survey.

 

Officials said, "This feedback will not only give a baseline of the district’s current condition but also help determine formative projects for the district in its beginning months and years."  

 

On Tuesday, from 1-5 p.m., the district's board of directors will meet at the corner of 6th and Market Streets to begin their walking tour from 6th Street north to the Tennessee River.

On Thursday, March 5, from 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., the district's board of directors will meet at the corner of 6th and Market Streets again to begin their walking tour from 6th Street south to 11th Street. 

 

“Since the inception of our board in October of 2019, we’ve been working to setup the essential framework of the district including the tasks of establishing governing bylaws and recruiting an executive director to lead the day to day of the organization," said Kelly Fitzgerald, Chattanooga Business Improvement District Board of Directors vice chair. “The walking tours and survey are an important part in making sure the District’s board and staff are addressing the pressing issues that stakeholders want to see and to be good stewards of our resources.”

 

If someone cannot attend the walking tours or would prefer to provide feedback online, a survey can be accessed at www.chattanoogabid.com
