Business Improvement District – Historic Olde Town Arvada

Incorporated in June 2001, the Historic Olde Town Arvada Association (HOTA) is a non-profit 501c(6) organization serves area businesses as a merchant association.  HOTA promotes Olde Town as a vibrant shopping district, creates a memorable experience for all, and preserves our history for future generations.  Olde Town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2014, the business and property owners in conjunction with The City of Arvada, created the Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District (BID).  The BID is funded through an 8.5 mill levy on all commercial properties within the district along with a grant from the city.  The district is generally bordered on the north by Ralston Road, the south by Grandview Avenue, the east by Teller Street and the west by Yukon Street.

The BID’s operating plan focuses on advocacy, marketing and events, placemaking, mobility, physical improvements and safety.

The BID is governed by a seven member board comprised of business and/or property owners that serve a three year term.  The current board is:

Mike Huggins – President
Scott Spears – VP
Lori Drienka – Secretary
Debbie Hanson – Treasurer
Charlie Berger
Brandon Capps
Antonia Pappas
Deborah Pearson
Karen Wood

The BID Board generally meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month.   During the holidays, meetings may be changed to accommodate the calendar.   Special meetings may be held throughout the year.  All board and special meetings are open to the public.  Meeting agendas with meeting locations are posted in kiosk in the Olde Town Square, Olde Wadsworth & 57th Street.
