Meaford BIA

The Meaford Business Improvement Area is an organization which has been active for over two decades. As an enthusiastic group of business people, who have an investment in our community, we spend many hours of volunteer time serving our mandate. The Ontario Municipal Act stipulates that the BIA is responsible for both beautification and promotion of the downtown business community.

The Meaford BIA has an operating budget based on a self-regulated tax levy for all businesses within our downtown jurisdiction.

Some downtown beautification activities the BIA takes part in or assists with:

•   Fall & Winter Decorations
•   Flower boxes &  baskets
•   Benches
•   Litter Clean-up
•   Flags & Banners
•   Waste & Recycling Recepticals
•   Storefront Displays
•   Heritage Preservation

The BIA liaises with municipal council on many issues including: waste disposal, business tax by-laws, signage by-laws, utilities & services maintenance, economic development plans, inter-community projects, and strategic planning for the future. The Meaford B.I.A. is involved with any issue that may affect the future welfare of the downtown business community - whether political, social or economic in nature.
