A BID in the Works for 7th Avenue


    The Park Slope Chamber of Commerce, local pos and community groups are looking to create a Business Improvement District along 7th Avenue in Park Slope. The proposed district includes all properties fronting 7th Avenue from St. John’s Place to 16th Street. The idea of the BID is to keep the streets clean, promote events on the avenue and add additional security through storefront cameras and volunteer patrols. There is already a BID on 5th Avenue that does similar work. Right now the proposal is in its very early stages. There’s a public informational meeting about the proposal on Thursday, February 28th at 9 am at Greenwood Baptist Church (461 6th Street). After the planning phase, those working on the BID will begin outreach. If there’s enough community support, the BID will be put into legislation.
