mystoneycreek, jason, please elaborate on BIA issue. I'm not very familiar but always suspected BIA was just another tax, supposedly for beautification plus anything organizers can scalp off. WHat do owners do if they can't afford the surcharge? How much is a typical surcharge/ how does it work? Also, i've always wondered if BIAs (or merchant assns) on one street just rob from other streets to boost their own - which possibly infers that all BIAs should be abolished????

Ottawa Street is closer to me & Merulla said he's trying to get something going on Kenilworth. Barton beautification didn't seem to do much, but i bet it cost a bundle. I can't see BIAs working on just any street but will be interested in any opinions on the subject.
