The Fort William Business District BIA has several committees working under the Board of Management in the following areas: Beautification; Events & Marketing; Parking; and Crime & Security.
Task forces and sub-committees may also be set up from time to time to accomplish specific tasks. Certain committees or sub-committees may have non-BIA members who are in advisory positions or willing to help out on specific projects. Final decision-making authority for all committees rests with the Board of Management.
Beautification – “To enhance the beauty of the area, the Beautification Committee is committed to working towards a clean and beautiful downtown.” The Beautification Committee is responsible for the areas of streetscape, garbage removal and receptacles, benches, flowers, seasonal banner and streetlight decorations, and the white lights tree program.
