Downtown Business Improvement District #1
A Business Improvement District (BID) enables property owners and businesses within a defined area to pay for necessary services or improvement above and beyond what government can provide. A BID often serves to formalize loosely defined relationships in order to equitably fund and implement improvement area activities. The Nebraska Legislature authorized BIDs in 1967. The Fremont Downtown Business Improvement District #1 was established in 2017.
The Fremont Downtown Business Improvement District #1 is made up of 11 volunteer board members that are involved in a collective contribution to the maintenance, development and promotion of the downtown area. They advise for the use of the downtown occupation tax funds and hear appeals to the amount of tax.
