OBIA Info

Orangeville Business Improvement Area (OBIA)

Adopted in 1976, the Orangeville BIA (OBIA) was created in an effort to build a stronger business area in an era when traditional downtowns began the struggle to compete against malls and plazas.  Its goal was to bring independent business people together to build a stronger business area.  The OBIA currently represents over 230 businesses in the Fairgrounds Shopping Centre and in the downtown area, from Lakeview Court and the Best Western in the east along Broadway to Faulkner St. and Cunningham Vacuums at its western border and includes all or portions of several side streets in between.  Read On…
