The downtown Bozeman Business Improvement District (BID) is an organization of downtown property owners who through thoughtful, pro-active collaboration and partnership with local government, business owners, residents, and citizens strive to create a shared vision and voice for the community of downtown Bozeman. The BID will commit resources, identity, plan, and act on short-term and long-term initiatives otherwise unavailable to individual owners. The BID has a goal of ensuring the long-term preservation and vitality of the city’s underlying economic, cultural, social, and environmental assets. The BID will work together to keep our downtown a safe, beautiful, and vibrant place.

The BID was originally founded in 2000, expanded in 2006, renewed in 2010, and renewed again in 2020. BID revenues are derived from a voluntary annual assessment based on each property’s portion of the district’s taxable value. The BID is overseen by a board appointed by the City Commission.

BID monies support numerous programs including the summer flower baskets, holiday lighting, graffiti removal, and year-round maintenance employees.
