The Washington Business Improvement District (WBID) is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) formed as a legal self-governing body, funded through an assessment on business property.
The WBID creates an environment where business and government can work together to promote opportunities, enhance the shoppers experience, and preserve the cultural, historic, tourist and civic interests of the district.
Washington Borough takes great pride in its downtown and is always seeking ways to improve the streetscape. Upgrades have included extra-wide pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, antique-style town clock and complementing street lights, a pocket park with performance space, and plenty of convenient parking. The Borough is home to more than a dozen free and low-cost annual festivals and events each year. Well-attended by area residents, these events also attract more than 15,000 visitors annually.
