What is BID?
Shawano Business Improvement District (BID) was created on April 13, 1988 by the City of Shawano. The district includes the area in the City of Shawano that compromises Shawano’s Central Business District. This area represents the heart of Shawano’s downtown, linking Main Street business with business on Green Bay Street. In addition, there are associate members of the BID, who choose to be part of the BID but are not included in the contiguous area.
The objective of the BID is to promote the development, redevelopment, operation and promotion of Shawano Downtown for the benefit of all businesses and property owners within the BID. The BID focuses on advocacy for the property/business owners with the district functioning as one unified voice.
