About Downtown Kenosha

BID Board of Directors

Welcome to Downtown Kenosha, a thriving lakefront district filled with unique shopping opportunities, delicious dining options, and plenty of things to see and do. You’ll find historic appeal, friendly faces, public art, and something new around every turn. Downtown Kenosha has been the heart of the Kenosha community for decades and has seen huge strides in redevelopment in recent years. The beautiful parks and beaches offering access to Lake Michigan, and dozens of restaurants, welcoming shops, Smithsonian affiliate museums, and exciting entertainment venues, make Downtown a destination for visitors to the Kenosha Area.

Our Mission

The current mission of the Lakeshore Business Improvement District and its board of directors is to create a livable, vibrant space which is sensitive to Kenosha’s historic roots, with significant activities and jobs that make it a destination for the region.

Kenosha Lakeshore Business Improvement District (BID)

The Kenosha Lakeshore BID was created by the City of Kenosha under Wisconsin Statute 66.1109 in 1986 to allow businesses to develop, manage and promote Downtown Kenosha and to establish an assessment method to fund permitted activities. Along with the City of Kenosha, County of Kenosha, Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA), Visit Kenosha, Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, the Kenosha Lakeshore BID funds the activities of Downtown Kenosha, Inc.

The BID Board meets monthly, on the third Tuesday of the month at the Wyndham Garden Kenosha Harborside 5125 6th Avenue Kenosha, WI 53140 at 8:30am or via zoom. Meetings are open to the public.

BID Board members must own property or live in the Lakeshore BID District. They serve staggered terms to carry out the organization’s mission. BID contacts with Visit Kenosha to carry out marketing and promotion goals, and works with downtown Kenosha.
