In York’s BID, property owners are assessed at a rate of .001% of their property value, and the funds are used to support Downtown Inc’s mission to champion the downtown experience.
YBIDA also thanked two outgoing members, including Attorney Kate Hynes, a board member since 2018, who was instrumental in the strategic Affiliation with YCEA and was an active member of the YBIDA Development Committee for fundraising success.
