Welcome to Ed!, the Edmonds Downtown Alliance.


With nearly 350 members, if your business is located in downtown Edmonds, you are likely a member of our business improvement district. 


Business Improvement Districts (BID) are special assessment areas established under the Revised Code of Washington (Chapter 35.87.A). They provide a local funding mechanism whereby businesses assess themselves to fund programs related to activities such as beautification, marketing, security, parking, clean-up or administration.


Our district is called the Edmonds Downtown Alliance.


Created by the Edmonds City Council in early 2013, we are a focused, funded organization that supports and improves business conditions in Edmonds. Our goal is to ensure our downtown stays lively, attractive and prosperous.


A boundary map, assessment overview and approved scope of work are included on this site.


Advisory Board meetings are help on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 8 am at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 4th Ave North, Room 225. Please join us.




 



 







 




COMMERCIAL BENEFITS

A prosperous district is a crucial component to a successful business environment. Commercial areas like downtown Edmonds compete for customers within the greater Puget Sound area. Establishing a business improvement district is an answer to keeping the area healthy and viable. A BID Board will be responsible for administering activities that the business owners themselves decide are important.

 

RESIDENTIAL BENEFITS

An attractive and thriving downtown is also a crucial element of a vibrant residential community. People want to live in neighborhoods where public areas are beautiful, streets are clean, and where businesses prosper. A BID can provide services that will communicate to residents that downtown Edmonds is where they want to shop, eat, find professional services and conduct business.
