The proposed Greater JFK Industrial Business Improvement District (IBID) seeks to provide support to the off-airport air cargo and services district by implementing a program of supplemental services and improvements, technical and professional services for its members, as well as advocacy and administration.The proposed JFK IBID would generate an annual budget that will fund any supplemental services, improvements and advocacy in an effort to address the needs of the District as defined by the District members. Outreach to district property owners and tenants is on-going and it is expected that the DRAFT District Plan will be enhanced by the feedback and public review in the coming months.
Draft District Plan
The Greater JFK IBID Planning Committee has crafted a DRAFT District Plan for the off-airport industrial area. Highlights of the IBID Plan are presented on the following pages: Map of the District, Proposed Services and Improvements, IBID Annual Budget & Assessment Formula, Annual IBID Payments.
District Plan Basics
The District Plan is prepared as a requirement of the BID Law and with authorization by the Mayor of New York City. An “IBID” and “BID” follow the same format and formation process. The District Plan describes the proposed district boundaries, services and improvements, annual operating budget, assessment formula to calculate the annual charge to each property within the proposed district, not-for-profit organization to implement the proposed program, as well as other planning documents.

The BID Law dictates the format of the District Plan shown above, but does not define the neighborhood challenges that the creation of a BID seeks to address. The strength of the BID Law is in its flexibility that allows each BID area to tailor the District Plan to its needs.
