Advocacy is an important role BID can play for its constituent property and business owners. BID monitors meetings of City boards and commissions, City Council, County Commissioners, Chamber of Commerce, Durango Area Tourism Office, La Plata County Economic Development Alliance and Local First. Staying on top of what these boards and organizations are doing helps us stay ahead of local issues that will affect our constituents.
There are limits to what a BID can do in support of local issues, but in the past BID has signed on as a supporter of issues on the ballot. BID attends and speaks at local meetings to influence policy decisions, and we participate in public comment meetings to represent BID’s constituent’s views.
If you have an issue you want BID to consider, or wonder where BID stands on an issue, please contact Executive Director email Tim Walsworth at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 970-375-5068.
