Welcome to the Club

If you own a business or property in the 80 square block region of the downtown Spokane BID, you are a member of an exclusive club actively investing in making downtown Spokane the center for commerce, culture, and living in the Intermountain Northwest. The BID is funded by the City of Spokane and private investment, including Ratepayer assessments (that's you!), contributions to parking validation, event sponsorship, and more. BID programs focus on making downtown a more desirable place for businesses, shoppers, and visitors. Similar to other BIDs across the country, programs focus on clean, safe, marketing, economic development and transportation.
