Businesses on Bank St pay into the Bank St Business Improvement Area to help promote the neighbourhood and to lobby on its behalf. Decisions about the branding of a neighbourhood are typically left to BIAs ? rather than its residents or property owners.
In Ottawa, the seats on the BIA are filled by city council. In April 2007, council approved the current board.
