The 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 JFK IBID generates 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 was undertaken and led to a DRAFT District Plan which was presented to the public for feedback. Few modifications, if any, were made to the Draft District Plan. The final District Plan was completed and now stands as become part of the BID legislation signed into law by the Mayor in November 2016.

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.
