Board

Advisers, decision makers, and problem solvers

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors is vital to the work of the BID. Board members serve as advisers, decision makers, and problem solvers. They are elected by each “category” of stakeholders to represent their voice and vision for the district. All board members are volunteers who put in countless hours in meetings and in the community advocating for the Fulton Street corridor.
