What does the BIA do for me?
The mandate of the BIA is two fold. To beautify the area and to promote Main St. businesses. Each year the board will decide the best way to invest funds to accomplish these mandates.
How does the BIA work ?
Main St. Newmarket BIA is run by a volunteer Board of Management elected from its members. The Board is nominated at an Annual General Meeting (AGM) and once approved by City Council, serves a four-year term concurrent with the term of Council. The Board works on behalf of its membership and meets regularly to develop budgets, set priorities, implement capital improvements, plan festivals, and promote the business area.
When are BIA meetings held?
BIA holds their meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, at 7:30pm, usually at the Community Centre.
