The BIA is funded by a municipal tax levy that allows local business people and property owners to join together and promote economic development in their district. To undertake its plans and objectives, the BIA sets an annual budget, approved by members and endorsed by the Town of Richmond Hill Council.
BIA improvements and activities help to create a more vibrant local community. A dynamic community attracts more visitors and retains more local customers for all types of services – including dining, entertainment and professional services.
Since 2009, The Village of Richmond Hill Business Improvement Area (BIA) has been committed to improving and promoting local businesses, services and property owners within the district. With many stores, restaurants and our local Center for the Performing Arts, the BIA aims to maintain its position as Richmond Hills primary shopping, business and entertainment district.
By improving, beautifying, and maintaining municipally owned lands, buildings and structures in the BIA district, we will make The Village of Richmond Hill the desired place to come and explore.
