This November, business owners are being asked to fund the Steamboat Springs downtown business improvement district, known as BID. Those who own property or operate a business in the downtown district are eligible to vote on a proposed 2.22 mill levy. In addition, businesses on Yampa Street and Lincoln Avenue that are located in the "premium zone" would be voting on a special frontage assessment of $10.29 per linear foot.
