New BID for the Bronx

On December 31, 2008, Mayor Bloomberg signed legislation authorizing the creation of a new Business Improvement District for Southern Boulevard in the Hunts Point/Longwood section of the Bronx. You can view the press release here (courtesy of the Community Board 2 website).

This is an important retail commercial area for the borough, but it has problems with disorder and an environment in need of restoration. Bronx Community Solutions has been sending community service crews to the area on a regular basis.

Here's a map of the area.
