About Us

Established in 2004, the North Avenue/Fond du Lac Marketplace Business Improvement District was created to advance the economic and environmental goals of local businesses, entrepreneurs and community organizations in the BID 32 service area.  The BID’s Boundaries are North Avenue from 8th to 27the Street and Fond du Lac Avenue from 17th to 27th Streets.  The Marketplace BID 32 is located in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood

The Marketplace Bid 32 was one of the first BIDs in the country to focus its mission on how our environments affect businesses and businesses practices. The Marketplace BID will work to reduce environmental waste though healthy business and healthy living projects with environmentally centered goals that include; waste remediation, recycling programs and energy and water conservation projects with the businesses in the community.

Because of its location, in the Lindsay Heights Community, it is a natural fit to focus its goals on business practices that targets healthy neighborhood lifestyles. The Fondy Farmers Market, Walnut Way CDC and Conservation Corp, Johnson Park and Alice’s Garden are all with-in the BID’s Commercials Corridor and is also home to YMCA and several community medical clinics that further support the mission of a viable community and “health-full” living.

The Marketplace BID 32 is one of the few BID’s in the City of Milwaukee with a comprehensive business development plan and offers a myriad of workshops each year focused on business development and planning. Additional business supports to commercial corridor business and property owners include: Façade Improvement Matching Grants, Safety and Security Matching Grants, Business Development Workshops, Environmental Efficiency Resources, and other financial resources to support the foundation and development of the businesses or those who wish to locate their businesses in the area.

The Marketplace BID 32 has many collaborating partners to help accomplish its mission to become a viable and sustainable community. In January of 2011 The North Avenue and Fond du Lac Marketplace BID #32 along with the Fondy Food Center (Farmers Market) moved its offices to 23rd and Fond du Lac. This was a great opportunity for the BID to be on a main commercial thoroughfare to better serve the businesses, property owners and the community.
