Biz Buzz: Creating a Buzz About Your Business District

Want to put your neighborhood on the map? The URA's Biz Buzz Program is designed to help business district organizations, such as business associations, chambers of commerce, community based organizations and community development corporations, spur neighborhood business district revitalization through short and medium term achievable projects and activities*. The goals of Biz Buzz are to bring newcomers into neighborhood business districts and create energy and excitement about the business district through media and word-of-mouth.

The Fall 2020 application round for the Biz Buzz program has closed. Please check back in 2021 for information about the next round!
