AGENCY FUNCTION: The Hartford Business Improvement District (HBID) is a public/private partnership established to provide enhanced services within the Hartford commercial area. Property owners choose to make a collective contribution to the maintenance, development and promotion of their district. The investment, through an additional municipal tax, goes to fund services beyond those already provided by the city. Property owners determine the priorities of the district and how the additional funds are spent and managed. The HBID provides a way for owners to fund and prioritize services above and beyond what the municipality provides. Establishing a BID also allows owners to develop a common vision for the district and collectively create and advocate for programs that add value to their properties.
