About the Business Improvement District

Improving Quality of Place in Downtown Gallup, NM

The Business Improvement District (B.I.D.) tool was created by the State of New Mexico in 1978 in Section 3 Article 63. The City Council of Gallup approved a local ordinance enacting the B.I.D. in 2009 after a majority of property owners within the boundaries of the District voted in favor of the B.I.D. These property owners voted in favor of a property assessment in the amount of 1% of the assessed value of each property within the District boundaries under then 2006 real property tax assessment, which is billed twice per year.

The average assessment bill is $180.29, and there are 174 assessed properties in the district (government buildings are excluded per the State).
