MARKET REPORTS AND RESEARCH
The Georgetown BID regularly monitors the performance of the commercial district and produces reports, studies, and other data on the Georgetown economy.These reports are intended to be resources for business owners, property owners, brokers, potential tenants, and others interested in doing business in Georgetown. Contact Jamie Scott, the BID's director of planning and economic development director, at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or suggestions to improve these reports.
The Georgetown BID has produced a white paper that analyzes the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) design review process. The OGB is a Congressionally-chartered architectural review board charged with reviewing exterior alterations, demolition, and construction of buildings in Georgetown. The BID produced this paper to better understand the OGB process, identify issues, and explore opportuntities to improve the process while maintaining desirable historic preservation outcomes. Process changes seek to achieve the following:
The white paper is based on conversations with more than two dozen architects, business owners, building owners, DC Historic Preservation Office (HPO) staff, CFA staff, former OGB board members, and other experts familiar with the process. The BID is convening a working group of stakeholders to make consensus-based recommendations that can improve the process and result in positive outcomes for Georgetown, the District, and the OGB. We invite you to read the white paper and submit your comments to email@example.com.
In November 2017, the Georgeotown BID conducted a survey of Georgetown residents to learn more about their shopping and dining behavior in Georgetown, and the retailers, restaurants, and experiences they would like to see in Georgetown.
