Provide an organized representation for businesses to undertake improvements, enhance city services and co-operatively market their businesses in an attempt to sustain and rejuvenate the area, while increasing each business’ portion of the market share.
For those of you not familiar with the BIZ, we are a merchants’ organization whose mandate is to create an environment in which our members can prosper.
- Physical enhancement projects
- Crime prevention and safety initiatives
The BIZ also undertakes some initiatives in the area of business to business networking and economic development. All business owners within our boundaries are automatically members of the BIZ and contribute to the annual operating budget. Our boundaries extend from the Red River on the West Side, Archibald Street on the East Side, Goulet Street on the North Side, and St. Mary’s Road to Carrière Street to the South. The BIZ prides itself on its exceptional reputation for working with the community to achieve mutually beneficial goals. An excellent example is our Annual Planting Party where community groups join us to plant our flowerbeds and planters.
Throughout this site you will learn about our current programs and services. As always, we welcome and appreciate your support of local businesses.
