Our goals are to support the local economy and attract shoppers to stay local, and enjoy the best shopping and dining experience that only be found in Downtown Flushing.
At the request of our members, the BID created a banner program to encourage business activity in the district. The BID install 3' x 8' sized banners made of a heavy duty material onto the lamp posts. The decorative street banners will welcome people to Flushing and showcase the diverse business. Sponsorship is open to all members of the BID as well as the local community. The banner program will also help bring in additional resources to the BID.
