The Business Improvement District encompasses 89 blocks, 322 tax parcels, and more than 300 businesses in the core of the central business district of Superior.
The Stakeholders of the SBID (property owners & business owners in the District) help contribute to initiatives aimed at promotion, management, maintenance, and development and improvement of properties within the District.
An eleven (11) member board governs the SBID with 51% of all members required to be commercial property owners or their appointed representatives.
There are currently three SBID committees: Design, Executive, and the Promotions/Marketing Committee. The Design Committee reviews and approves all grant applications for building restoration, new construction, and signage, as well as provide guidance on the District’s “sense of place.” The Executive committee shall consist of four (4) members, the three elected officers, and the past president or their designate. This committee will be chaired by the president and shall also serve as the finance and personnel committees. The Promotions/Marketing Committee is a group of volunteers, chaired by a member of the Board and works to encourage others to support the downtown through different promotions, events and marketing efforts.
Property owner assessments are matched by the operating budget of the City of Superior to fund the district. We also apply for CDBG funds and grants whenever available.
Are you currently part of the BID and have a property for sale or lease? Download the appropriate NorthlandConnection.com Property Form from the Northland Connection property tool and submit it to the SBID for regional and statewide marketing.
The Superior Business Improvement District proudly serves its Stakeholders as well as partners within the Northland, Duluth, MN MSA, and Douglas county areas.
