The North End Business Association consists of commercial properties, and businesses renting in commercial properties, within the geographic boundaries of an HRM approved business improvement district (BID). Member businesses pay a tax levy that sustains the BID association, and in exchange, member businesses receive services from the association according to the BID mission:
- To create policies, events, awareness and momentum to build upon a successful, resilient business community;
- To be an influential advocate for the best conditions for sustainable business growth; and
- To support the development and retention of a diverse, inclusive and vibrant North End.
In effort to promote the North End as “the place to do business,” NEBA is offering an Associate Membership to all businesses, including home-based businesses, within the NEBA Associate Membership Area (see map.) Applicants must actively demonstrate they support the mission of the BID, and may be contracted to perform services, asked to volunteer on committees, or approached to partner on initiatives.
