Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District (BID)

The Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District (BID) is a 49-block taxing district approved by property owners to cultivate a cleaner, safer and more vibrant downtown community. The tax is used by the BID to provide maintenance services that supplement those offered by the city, as well as fund a comprehensive consumer marketing program. 


The BID Operations Program works year round to make Downtown Boulder a beautiful, safe and welcoming place to visit. Comprehensive maintenance services for the district include trash removal, graffiti removal and general downtown security. 


The BID Marketing Program is responsible for the marketing and promotion of the downtown district to both consumer and investor markets. This includes, but is not limited to, promotions, advertising, image campaigns, branding, banners, brochures, printed collateral materials, newsletters, public relations, social media, online efforts and market research. 

Economic Vitality

The Downtown Boulder BID funds economic vitality efforts, including market research, tenant recruitment for both office and retail, as well as support programs for small businesses. We also educate the public on the importance of shopping local to support our community and our small businesses.
