BID Expansion

Proposed BID Expansion 

As the neighborhood grows and evolves, so does the need for further districtwide promotions, advocacy, and public realm services & enhancements.

In April 2020, the Flatiron BID Expansion Steering Committee submitted its BID expansion proposal and documented statements of support to the NYC Department of Small Business Services for its formal consideration and review. As of November 30, 2020, the proposal has entered the the public review and legislative approval phase
The BID Expansion received support from committees of Community Board 4 and 5 in December and on January 20th received a public hearing at the City Planning Commission. City Planning submitted its recommendation for the expansion of this Business Improvement District to the City Council. The City Council Finance Committee now has the proposal for review and on Thursday, May 27, 2021 held a public hearing on the expansion plan.

The proposed expansion will bring our robust services—sanitation, safety, homeless outreach, marketing, and public improvements—to a larger footprint that includes NoMad, the Sixth Avenue gateway to the district and 20th Street.

The expansion will form a more a more cohesive, clean, safe, and vibrant district that nurtures and facilitates the dynamic Flatiron experience further throughout Midtown South.
