2020 Creation Status
The BID seeks (re)creation of the District
The goal of the HBID is to maintain, beautify, and stimulate development in Downtown Helena. Your affirmative vote and contribution will provide ongoing efforts in our program areas as well as other areas of economic development. The renewal of the HBID is dependent upon your vote. Without it, the downtown and all our positive momentum may falter. Unless the HBID is renewed, there likely will be NO targeted funds to support the programs or projects currently maintained by the HBID staff. Please consider the entire program, what it does for the overall appearance and vitality for the Helena community.
On May 7, 2019 the vote began. The petitions were mailed to all property owners. Once we receive 60% of the signed petitions, we will look to the City of Helena to formally create the district for another ten-year cycle.
Request for petition signatures deadline was marked July 31, 2019. Staff and Board members will reach out to any unsigned petition owners after that date. If you have any questions, please contact any Board member or the Executive Director. We look forward to continuing our work and thank you for your support!
