About the EBID
The Eisenhower Business Improvement District (EBID) represents an important movement by property owners and business leaders to establish a well-funded, professional organization. We continue to work to ensure the community maintains a positive perception of the Eisenhower retail corridor, supplements city services to raise the standard of excellence, and promotes businesses to respond to challenges from other competitive developments.
Furthermore, EBID plays a major role in the sustainability and growth of the Eisenhower retail corridor. EBID will provide immediate beautification, increased law enforcement presence, and recruitment of new businesses. The creation of EBID is absolutely critical and allows property owners the opportunity to improve the future of their business and the surrounding area.
