2018 Budget Input
Over the last two years, the Broadway BIA has experienced significant growth and the 2018 budget will fund additional services to benefit the area. One new service added to the cleaning contract with Recology will be regular hosing of the alley west of Broadway between John St. and Thomas St. and increased staffing will improve reliability for the seven day a week services.
The BBIA board approved additional funding to ensure the homelessness outreach conducted by the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) continues after City funding expires in March. For the past two years, these social workers have outreached to a number of individuals in crisis, connecting dozens with a range of services such as housing, employment, substance treatment, and mental health services, and it is critical this service remain in place for Broadway area businesses.
The 2018 budget will also fund additional marketing year round, seasonal programs and the wildly successful winter tree lighting.

Winter tree lighting
Tree lights went up in mid-November, bringing extra sparkle and cheer to Broadway area businesses. We tried to light all of the BIA area, but unfortunately there are some areas we were unable to light due to non-functioning power sources on Seattle City Light poles.
These lights will be up through March 2018 and will be maintained on a regular basis. If you see light strings that have been damaged and/or are no longer working, please send a note to with location and a brief description to email@example.com.
