Abstract

Much has been written about the role of redevelopment in the formation of the post-industrial city. Less attention has been paid to other ways in which such spaces are produced and reproduced. This paper examines the role of business improvement districts (BIDs) in the central business districts of major American cities also aimed at fashioning a post-industrial geography. After a discussion of their service-providing and regulatory activities, consideration is given to these organisations as an evolution of special district local government. An explanation linking the development of BIDs to the spatial contradictions resulting from redevelopment activity and the emerging post-industrial political economy is outlined.
