Who We Are

The Colfax Ave Business Improvement District (BID) promotes economic vitality, implements a clean and safe street program, and advocates on behalf of area businesses among public and private partners. We are funded by a tax on commercial property located within the BID’s boundaries (approximately Grant to Josephine, between 14th and 16th). Founded in 1989, the organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors representing a diverse mix of area businesses and property owners and who are appointed by the Mayor.

What We Do
The Colfax Ave BID is dedicated to cultivating a clean, safe and friendly environment on Colfax. We provide enhanced services to the business corridor such as trash removal, street cleaning, security, streetscape improvements, marketing and promotional services as well as liaising with surrounding community groups. The BID also works closely with Denver Police, the Office of Economic Development, the Department of Public Works, Community Planning & Development, and other organizations to represent the needs of area business and property owners.
