The Structure of Bids: Public–Private Hybrids
This chapter offers a structural assessment of BID publicness and privateness. It builds upon the introductory description of BIDs and public–private behavioral perspectives discussed in the previous chapter. I’ll render here a full portrait of BIDs’ formal institutional character. It was suggested in Chap. 1 that BIDs are public–private hybrids since they are private organizations charged with the public power of taxation. That contention will now be established with greater specificity.
