The BID - CANA makes a difference!

CANA’s voice was heard and the City increased publicity about the ordinance to create the Wilton Drive Business Improvement District (BID or District).  Although the initial ordinance did not include a resident on the BID Board, the ordinance was finalized on December 9, 2014 includes resident with an equal vote.

This ordinance is a significant accomplishment for the entire City. It has the potential for a major impact on the overall community.  The recent collaborative process is a fine example of the City, businesses and involved residents working as a community to improve our City.

Individuals interested in serving on the Board should contact the City Clerks office.
