“Substantial Support” Just Isn’t There
The problematic SoHo BID proposal is NOT needed.
An Editorial in the Downtown Express states it clearly:
“We can’t support the effort to create a BID along Soho’s Broadway corridor.”

This BAD BID PLAN, which would give over local community control to a consortium
of Real Estate interests, should be tossed in the TRASH, where it belongs.
The Downtown Express reminds everyone that Councilmember Margaret Chin has previously stated:
“I will not support a Broadway Soho BID unless I see substantial support
from residents in the proposed BID catchment area”
The Downtown Express Editorial also notes:
“Clearly, that “substantial support” just isn’t there …
a BID without the community’s backing simply won’t fly.“
Tell Councilmember Chin to keep her promise to her constituents.
The time has come to take a stand: REJECT the SoHo BID!
