Boca Raton city officials have been considering forming a Business Improvement District downtown, according to the Sun Sentinel, but are hesitant to pass the cost along to property owners.

BIDs have been successful in several other downtown areas in South Florida, the Sun Sentinel noted, as they pay for shuttles, special events, extra parking and other amenities that the cities cannot afford. The issue has been on the table at Downtown Boca Raton Advisory Committee meetings since November and was brought before the mayor and city council for the first time this week at a Community Redevelopment Agency meeting. It would meet some of the city’s goals that are unattainable under the current budget.

Downtown manager Ruby Childers, who is leading the push, proposed a four-phase process to slowly incorporate the BID in Boca Raton and officials are working to determine how to assess property owners. [Sun-Sentinel]
