The Chinatown-International District BIA is one of Seattle’s 10 Business Improvement Areas.  Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) have been an important part of Seattle’s vibrant neighborhoods since the 1980s.  The CIDBIA was founded by property and business owners in Chinatown and Japantown who wanted to see enhanced cleaning and promotion services for the District.  The organization is primarily funded through a self-imposed assessment on business and property owners in the Chinatown-International District.  The organization has a Board of Directors comprised of ratepayers that oversee the work and rate payer funds spent by the organization.  The CIDBIA has an Executive Director and staff that manage and administer services and programs of the organization. Seattle’s BIAs supplement state and city programs to enhance the neighborhood, but do not duplicate government services.  For more information on Seattle’s Business Improvement Areas look here.
