WHAT IS A SPECIAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT?

UPTOWN LINDEN INC., THE CITY OF LINDEN'S SPECIAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT COMMITTEE IS PLEASED TO WELCOME YOU. Since the early 90’s, we’ve worked behind the scenes and without a “home”. Most merchants who populate Wood Avenue don’t really know who we are and what we do.
Uptown Linden Inc. has purchased and installed awnings on most of the store fronts, regularly buys plants, banners and hosts family-friendly events throughout the year. We’ve also been involved in supplementing advertising and business recruitment.
In the wake of Linden’s transit village designation and grant awards we are left to step up our game. No more elusive committee. Downtown is what we were, uptown is where we’re going!
Some of the initiatives we plan to launch over the next few months are as follows: producing merchant and parking maps for consumers, improving directional signs, boosting recruitement efforts, improving communication through social media and our website, adding additional events to the calendar, making grant opportunities easily accessible for merchants... and much, much more.
Working hand-in-hand with Mayor Armstead and the city council we hope to infuse a new energy into the business district. We hope all Linden’s merchants, consumers and residents take an active role in making our business district the very best it can be.
