SID – Special Improvement District in South Orange ?




South Orange businesses have been mostly opposed to the formation of a SID (special improvement district) as proposed by the SID advisory committee.  The SID would pass an assessment on businesses which is the main reason for the negative reaction.  The South Orange Chamber of Commerce and many business owners instead proposed that the BOT (Board of Trustees) work with the Chamber and the business owners directly and develop volunteer programs to accomplish the BOT’s goals for the town.  

In a meeting on tuesday night (11/28/11) the BOT scheduled a workshop to deal with the SID.  It is scheduled for Tuesday, December 6 from at 8 pm at Village Hall.
