Get involved, learn more about BID benefits | Letter
Editor, The Beacon:
I would like to apologize to Brent Malgarin for including his business during our discussion of business openings and closures at our June 12 meeting.
Our minutes reflect this correction, and we sincerely apologize for the error.
I would also like to thank Brent for his Letter to the Editor, as I hope his words have inspired you to find out more about this thing called a BID.
There is a long and winding story behind the formation of our Edmonds BID, which began with a handful of business owners in town looking for a way to make our downtown the best place for any business in the area to be located.
To create a funded organization where we could collaborate and dream and execute on our collective, germinating ideas. What if working together we could do better?
Brent is correct, we all have the right to come together and close the BID, which is a great safety net for each of us if this organization does not prove successful. But we have just begun.
Our organization is on the cusp of exciting progress.
I got involved because I worried how the Edmonds BID would spend my money.
I got involved because if one of my ideas was implemented, my $480 assessment was a good investment.
I got involved because I thought I could do more by bringing ideas, and volunteering time to make this a success.
Our advisory board meetings in September are on the 11th and 25th at 8 a.m. at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, room 225. Please join us!
Advisory Board president
