The Woodhaven Business Improvement District (WBID) is a band of property owners, business men and women, as well as community leaders, dedicated to improving Woodhaven commerce. Established in 1993, the WBID has been an influential part of the ever-changing, ever-growing business of Woodhaven.


The WBID incorporates all properties that front Jamaica Avenue from Dexter Court to 100th Street. The WBID contracts with outside vendors to provide security, sanitation, and graffiti vandalism removal services within the WBID boundaries. Promotional and administrative activities are undertaken in-house. Unlike the promotional and administrative activities, sanitation and security services are supplemental to existing City Services. Since 1993, City Services have been maintained and enhanced by the WBID.

The WBID has been involved in marketing and promotional activities on behalf of the District's retailers. In addition, the WBID serves as advocate for the needs of the entire BID community, working closely with various City Agencies and our elected officials. In our thirteenth year of operation, the Woodhaven Business Improvement District budget was for the first time since its inception increased from $160,000 to $218,000. These additional monies will increase Services and accommodate increased expenses.
