Data currency comments

This data in City systems is updated in the normal course of business, however priorities and resources determine how fast a change in reality is reflected in the database. The extract on this web site is updated weekly.

Data set description

The Business Improvement Area layer includes the boundary areas for the City’s BIAs. Business Improvement Areas or BIAs are non-profit associations of property owners and business tenants who join together to promote and improve the commercial viability of their business district.
