Who are we?
The Prince Albert Downtown Business Improvement District (PADBID) is a non-profit corporation established in March of 2004. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of property and business persons from within the designated Business Improvement District (BID). In the spring of 2016 Prince Albert City Council created PADBID as a statutory board of the city. This really has not changed the terms of reference or purpose. PADBID simply will be able to access city bulk utility and purchasing along with city accounting services. .One big saving will be our need for an audit. We will be part of the city’s annual return and audit. We also will access to city administration from many departments Our board includes 6 members, made up of property and business owners in our PADBID zone along with one appointed city councillor.
