CENTRAL BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT
DowntownKnoxville.org
The Central Business Improvement District (CBID) was created in 1993 to undertake programs and services that government is unable to provide. Its core mission is to enhance downtown's existing assets and bring more people to Downtown Knoxville to work, shop, live and play. The CBID ensures the downtown area is constantly renewed and improved, so that it continues to be an asset to future generations. The special assessment district covers more than 400 city blocks within one square mile and encompasses the core downtown area extending from the Old City to Volunteer Landing and 11th Street to Hall of Fame Drive.

CBID relies upon the energies and vision of community volunteers to develop and execute its plans and programs. An active board of directors and standing committees focus on four principal areas: development, marketing and events, security and parking/transportation.

Appointment of Board Members
The CBID Board of Directors consists of 11 members. One member is to be appointed by the speaker of the State Senate, one by the speaker of the State House of Representatives, one by the Mayor and the remaining members to be elected by the owners of real property within the district. Board members are elected for three-year terms.
Meetings Schedule
Board meets monthly on the last Monday of the month in the Knoxville Area Chamber offices at 11:30 a.m.
