The York-Eglitnon BIA promotes the area along Eglinton Ave. West, between Marlee Ave. and Dufferin St., as a business and shopping district through effective marketing; business recruitment; streetscape and amenity improvement; seasonal decorations and organizing special events.
In addition, the BIA oversees the improvement and beautification of properties, land, buildings and structures within its boundaries.
Thoughts About Art and Community
The York-Eglinton BIA has gone through some growing pains and in 2007, its western boundaries were realigned to focus on a more condensed grouping of businesses. This remodel has allowed the BIA to create strong community ties and build a stronger community image.
Currently, the BIA is working to develop its annual festival into a larger tourism pull in the summer months. In addition, the BIA Office is developing ideas to compliment its mandate of promoting its area as a business and shopping district.
