Congratulations to our Myrtle Avenue BID colleague!

The North Flatbush BID is excited about the announcement of our friend, and neighbor BID director, M. Blaise Backer being named as Deputy Commissioner at NYC Small Business Services.

Blaise has spent over a decade supporting the Fort Green, Clinton Hill neighborhoods with the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. He has been instrumental in dramatically lowering the vacancy rate along Myrtle Avenue, curating mom-and-pop businesses and now Blaise will head up the Neighborhoods division at SBS and will bring his expertise and enthusiasm to the benefit of New York City as a whole.
We at the North Flatbush Business Improvement District look forward to working with Blaise and his NYC Small Business Services team in the near future!

What is a BID?

New York City is home to the nation’s largest, most comprehensive network of Business Improvement Districts (BID’s) in the country.  The city’s BID’s annually contribute over $80 million worth of services to more than 70,000 businesses in neighborhoods across the five boroughs.

A Business Improvement District or “BID”  is a formal organization made up of property owners and commercial tenants who are dedicated to promoting business development and improving an area’s quality of life. BID’s deliver supplemental services such as sanitation and maintenance, public safety and visitor services, marketing and promotional programs, capital improvements, and beautification for the area – all funded by a special assessment paid by property owners within the district. Since its inception over twenty years ago, the City’s BID program has contributed over $830 million in supplemental services to invigorate our neighborhoods.

The New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) is the lead agency responsible for BID creation and oversight. If you would like more information or to learn more about SBS and the BID creation process, visit www.nyc.govdistrictdevelopement.
