The Taunton Business Improvement District (BID) is a nonprofit organization established in 2010. Membership is made up of Downtown property owners working together to revitalize the City’s central business district. Members contribute an annual fee equal to .5% of their assessed property value to fund BID operations.

BID programs include: Downtown maintenance services (daily sidewalk cleaning, storefront window washing, and supplemental snow plowing), beautification projects, collaborative marketing initiatives, and public safety enhancements.
