Bel Air Businesses May Pay For Downtown Marketing Manager

December 01, 1991

If the town of Bel Air hires someone to improve business in the town's commercial district, it may cost businesses between $100 to $500 each a year.

Liz Carven, community development administrator, said that after interviews with town business owners about a "manager" formarketing town businesses, the following fee structure has been proposed to support the post:

* Businesses with 1-25 employees -- $100 a year

* Businesses with 26 employees or more -- $250 a year

* Financial institutions and utilities -- $500 a year

The money would be used to cover promotion and marketing activities designed to enhance the appeal of businesses in downtown Bel Air, said Carven.

A meeting on the subject is scheduled for Dec. 4, she said.

Projects would be carried out through a commercial district management authority.
