Sunrise MarketPlace PBID renewal effort still short
The city’s largest business district, Sunrise MarketPlace (SMP), is actively seeking to gain the support of the owners of Sunrise Mall to ensure an effort to renew the business improvement district this year is successful, according to the SMP’s executive director. The district relies on an assessment levied on property owners in the district in order to fund operations and pay for a dedicated patrol officer, but the assessment must be renewed every few years. As of April 24, a tracker posted on SMP’s website shows the district has received a little over 80% of the petitions it needs from property owners to move forward. The district is hopeful to be able to secure enough petitions by the first week in May. Related: Funding of business district cop at stake in renewal vote
