Mission Statement
The mission of the Suisun City Historic Waterfront Business Improvement District is to promote the physical and financial health of the Waterfront as a unique business, social and cultural center of the City of Suisun City, thereby enhancing our community at large.

Vision Statement
Suisun City’s Waterfront is a vibrant destination for dining, cultural experiences and waterfront activities for all ages.

The Suisun City Historic Waterfront Business Improvement District was established by a city ordinance in 2003 in order to generate funds and collectively improve and promote Suisun City's Old Town and Waterfront districts.

All businesses within the Business Improvement District boundaries are accessed an annual fee according to a tiered structure based on location and type of business. The fee schedule provides a structure that recognizes retail, service and professional businesses.

BID fees are collected annually by the city along with business license fees. New businesses are exempt from the BID fee during the remainder of their first calendar year.

In addition, the BID looks at other ways to raise revenue on behalf of its members. Other BID revenue may include grants, sponsorships and fundraising events, as well as fees from businesses participating in specific projects that benefit them directly.

SCHWBID is managed by an elected board of directors representing specific zones within the BID. Terms are for three years.
