The 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District Inc.

The 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District, Inc. (BID) was established in December 2010. A 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, the BID represents the interests of both property owners and businesses in growing and sustaining a healthy, vibrant 5th Avenue South district.

What is the BID?
The BID provides an ongoing mechanism and dedicated source of revenue used by property owners and merchants to guide the future of their retail and commercial areas. The BID is based on state and local law, which permits property owners and merchants to band together to use the local government’s tax collection powers to “assess” themselves. In Naples, these funds are collected by the county and through the city, returned to the BID, and are used for purchasing supplemental services (e.g., advertising, promotions and special events, and providing downtown management and administration) beyond those services provided by the city.

The BID is managed by a Board of Directors representative of the district boundaries and includes a ten-year “sunset” provision, whereby the district would require a vote after every ten years but would report annually on goals and objectives accomplished. The City of Naples agrees to maintain the baseline level of services.

Mission Statement
Promote brand awareness of the 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District to residents and visitors as THE destination of choice to live, work, shop, dine and play.
