Downtown Surrey BIA Members:
In 2001, a core group of business and property owners in Whalley met to discuss issues of concern in their community. This ad hoc group was interested in the Business Improvement Area (BIA) concept and saw this as a promising planning and economic development tool for the area. The Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Area (BIA) (originally called the Whalley BIA) was created in April 2003 through the adoption of a special bylaw by Surrey City Council.
Under the direction of the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association (DSBIA), the BIA is completing its second mandate – from April 1st, 2008 to March 31st, 2012.
As the end of this period approaches, DSBIA Directors and staff are meeting with businesses and property owners in the area to discuss renewal of the mandate for an additional period (either five or seven years).
We want your input and look forward to your attendance at one of these meetings to share your ideas and concerns.
