Our Story

DKI manages the day-to-day economic development efforts, business support and promotional activities for the district. Downtown Kenosha is one of over forty designated Wisconsin Main Street Communities and is funded in part through a partnership with our Business Improvement District (BID), the City of Kenosha, Kenosha Area Business Alliance, the County of Kenosha, Kenosha Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce.

DKI Board of Directors

Although we serve to promote the Downtown Kenosha area, DKI consists of passionate professionals working behind the scenes to broaden the business landscape of the downtown area.

Kenosha Lakeshore Business Improvement District (BID)

The Kenosha Lakeshore BID was created by the City of Kenosha under Wisconsin Statute 66.1109 in 1986 to allow businesses to develop, manage and promote Downtown Kenosha and to establish an assessment method to fund permitted activities. Along with the City of Kenosha, County of Kenosha, Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA), Kenosha Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (KACVB) and Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, the Kenosha Lakeshore BID funds the activities of Downtown Kenosha, Inc.

The BID Board meets quarterly, on the third Thursday of March, June, September, and December at the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce office, 600 52nd St #103, Kenosha, WI 53140 at 8:30am. Meetings are open to the public.
