Associate Membership

The Downtown District brand has gained traction over the last few years, setting us up as a destination for locals and visitors alike. Become a part of our story.

To be a member of the Downtown District BIA you must own or lease commercial property within boundaries defined by the City of Belleville. As the Downtown District gains popularity we realize consumers and visitors don’t see boundaries. They seek experiences.
