What is On Havana Street?

The Havana Business Improvement District (BID) d.b.a. On Havana Street, is a special district in Colorado created in 2007 by business and neighborhood leaders and Aurora city staff working together to build a stronger, better community. We really are making a difference by focusing on unique, culturally diverse events and fun new things to do to make the lives of our residents and visitors more interesting, at the same time as adopting the goals of clean, safe and beautiful for our new business district.

In November 2007, the commercial property and business owners voted to tax themselves 4.5 mills in real property tax to fund the new business district. The margin of support was 80% yes to 20% no. The stakeholders are committed to promoting commerce and community On Havana Street. There are 196 real commercial properties and approximately 500 businesses. A 9-member board, made up of all sizes and types of businesses from different sections of Havana Street, oversees district programming. Gayle Jetchick, Executive Director, is the only staff member and is responsible for day-to-day activities On Havana Street.
