Marketplace BID 32
The Marketplace Bid 32 was one of the first BIDs in the country to focus its mission on how the environment affects business growth and business practices. The Marketplace BID will work to reduce environmental waste though thriving business and healthy living projects that are environmentally centered. These goals include; waste remediation, recycling programs, energy and water conservation projects and other best practice methods that would support a healthy and prosperous business community.
Because of its location within the Lindsay Heights Community, it is a natural fit for the organization to focus its business development goals on best practices that targets a healthy neighborhood lifestyle. Partners like the Fondy Farmers Market, Walnut Way CDC & Conservation Corp, Johnson Park, Alice’s Community Garden, The YMCA, and several medical and community development service organizations all help support a strong diverse Commercial Corridor that promotes “health-full” living.
The Marketplace BID 32 is one of the few BIDs in the City of Milwaukee with a comprehensive business development plan and offers a variety of workshops each year focused on business development and sustainability. Additional business supports to commercial corridor merchants and property owners include: Façade Improvement Matching Grants, Safety and Security Matching Grants, Business Development Workshops, Environmental Efficiency Resources, and other financial resources to support the foundation and development of the local merchants and those who wish to locate their businesses in the BID 32 trade area.
