Downtown Jackson Business Improvement District Reauthorized
District reauthorized by more than 95% of property owners
JACKSON, Miss. (Jan. 23, 2017) – The Board of Directors and Advisory Council of Downtown Jackson
Partners (DJP) proudly announce reauthorization of the Downtown Jackson Business Improvement
District (BID), by more than 95% of the voting property owners.
This our fifth term, as managers of the Downtown Jackson BID, marks our 21st year of operation.
Founded in 1996, as the first business improvement district in Mississippi, Jackson joined the ranks of
hundreds of other cities across the nation, in establishing districts that enhance city services and
revitalize business. By voting for the BID, Downtown Jackson property owners have determined to pay a
yearly assessment that supports DJP efforts in keeping Downtown Jackson clean, safe and developing.
“We are very grateful for the overwhelming vote of confidence and support from the property owners
and members of the Downtown Jackson Business Improvement District. We look forward to continued
growth and many more developments, so that all of our state will be proud of ‘Mississippi’s Downtown’”
said Steve Davis, Chairman of the DJP Board of Directors.
