The West Chester Business Improvement District (BID) was established in 2000 and renewed in 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020 to fund and implement programs that reflect three general goals:

  • increase customer traffic and sales
  • retain, expand and recruit viable businesses
  • to advocate the interests of downtown to government agencies


Our mission is to enhance the economic vitality of downtown West Chester through an active public private partnership between Borough government and the business and property owners in the Business Improvement District. Economic vitality is achieved through preserving our historic assets, responding to the needs of our community including business owners, residents and visitors, and marketing our unique qualities to the Delaware Valley region and beyond.
