The Port Jefferson Business Improvement District was founded in 1998 pursuant to Article 19-A of the General Municipal Law of the State of New York. The B.I.D. Board of Directors oversees and implements an annual budget of approximately $30,000. The funds are raised through tax assessments from the over 300 members of the district.
Our goals remain the same as our founders were in 1998:
“to promote the district as a good place to live, work, and shop… to improve the overall appearance and quality through architectural improvements, landscaping, redevelopment, decoration, signage, lighting, and improved sanitation.”
Improve cleanliness, safety, and beauty.
