Meet Our Team

Each of the people on our team believes passionately in the benefits the BID will bring to our community – including Clean & Safe services, local employment opportunities, and partnerships with other area nonprofits that will help maximize the good the BID can do.

In the future, we’ll be reaching out to add more voices to the mix. If you’re a property owner within the service district and are interested in board membership, please contact us.

If you’re a Venice community member looking for ways to participate in the BID, drop us a line with your ideas. We look forward to earning the support of the entire Venice community!
