OVERVIEW – Retail commercial districts such as Lower Lonsdale compete for business. What is also consistent now but was not in the past is the growing sophistication that these concentrated commercial areas undertake to increase and maintain consumer patronage and positive growth. There is a growing movement that started in the 1970’s called Business Improvement Areas. The largest concentration is in North America but it has spread almost world wide. These areas recognized that businesses working together on common issues that affect a concentrated commercial area benefits that area as a whole and helps to make that area more successful and also a place that draws people to want to live near. Maintaining a professional standard has benefits for all. Businesses together can have a stronger impact than if they went it alone. The Lower Lonsdale Business Association is gathering input from Lower Lonsdale businesses to determine what common concerns we may have and what new ideas may be suitable to explore.
