The Downtown Macon Business Improvement District (BID) is a self-taxing district that is led by a board of elected property owners. As outlined in the District Plan, the Downtown BID exists to create a greener, cleaner, and safer experience for all who visit, work, and live in our charming city center. The BID offers downtown Macon a competitive advantage to achieve NewTown’s vision of an authentic city experience unparalleled in the south. Since 2017, the BID has worked to improve the aesthetics and perception of downtown Macon. Downtown now boasts clear curb lines, manicured planter beds, debris-free alleyways, regularly pressure washed sidewalks, and friendly faces to assist visitors with directions and recommendations.

BIDs increase occupancy, rental rates, and property values to more than cover the annual cost of operation. The services provided by the BID reduce crime and improve public perception by maintaining areas with an elevated attention to detail.
