Vision

To make Downtown the place to be; an active and inviting boutique shopping destination with a mix of retail, restaurants and events.

Mission

To champion the transformation of Downtown North Battleford through investment attraction, signature events and partnerships.

The BID Model

The success of other business improvement districts paved the way for the North Battleford Business Improvement District.  These districts are shown to significantly enhance neighborhood safety, improve the experience for residents and visitors, promote areas as a place of business and maintain improvements, all of which lead to increased values and economic vitality for the neighborhood.  The North Battleford Business Improvement District, a self-managed improvement district, will allow for focused attention on business needs and responsiveness to downtown issues.  Close collaboration between the BID existing businesses, City of North Battleford and community organizations will ensure that regular updates on BID services and programs meet overall needs and are shared with businesses and the public.  The NB BID will produce several events and initiatives as well as endorse and promote festivals and other special events in our downtown core each year.
