The NYC Council will be voting on the formation of a new Business Improvement District (BID) in the Westchester Square section of The Bronx. With the Council’s approval, it will become the Bronx’s ninth BID.

Support for the Westchester Square BID began nearly four years ago under the guidance of Councilman James Vacca and members of the Westchester Square Merchants Association. The approval of the BID continues the turnaround of Westchester Square, along with the renovation of Owen Dolen Park and the donation of the former Washington Mutual Bank by J.P. Morgan Chase to the Bronx Council of the Arts.

John Bonizio, Chair of the Westchester Square BID Steering Committee

Joe Regina, Member, Westchester Square BID Steering Committee
