Cloverdale BIA added 128 Hanging Baskets for the beautification of downtown Cloverdale

Cloverdale BIA

Our purpose is to improve business in the Cloverdale Town Centre by providing a number of resources and programs that reinforce why this community is “A Good Place to Grow, since 1870!”

Created in 1995, with help from local businesses, the Cloverdale Chamber (formerly Cloverdale Board of Trade) and the City of Surrey; the BIA has embarked on a number of initiatives and programs that enhance the business community. The BIA organizes several successful annual community events like the Bed Races, the Chili Cook-off, and the Rodeo Parade & Santa Parade. The organization works closely with the City of Surrey on a number of beautification and safety initiatives that improve the look of the community, especially our iconic hanging baskets on the historic main street. The BIA is a strong advocate for over 260 local businesses and works closely with the City of Surrey on development in the area along with a strong focus on improving transportation and transit. Parking enhancements have been one of the Association’s strongest priorities to ensure that space is more effectively managed and modernized with the addition of new technology like electric vehicle charging stations.

The BIA is run by a volunteer board of directors who are elected members from the local business and property owners’ community. There are also a number of other volunteers and organizations like the Surrey Assoc. for Community Living, the BC Vintage Truck Museum and Surrey Crime Prevention Society that aid the BIA in numerous ways.

Our Mission

The Cloverdale BIA was established in 1995 and our mission is to develop, encourage and promote business in the Cloverdale area and to represent the common interests of Business and Property owners of the Cloverdale Town Centre Community.

Our Vision

To make the Cloverdale Town Centre the destination choice for residents for shopping, dining, living, entertainment and other services; and to act as a catalyst for vibrancy and prosperity in the area through advocacy, marketing, events, improvements and co-operative initiatives.

Special Events

The Cloverdale BIA has held annual events for over 20 years and continues to do so to help the community prosper. Most notably, the BIA organized the 72nd Annual Rodeo Parade in 2018 which averages 10000 visitors with 1100 participants. We are also responsible for holding the town's annual Bed Races and Bike Parade in partnership with the Cloverdale Chamber. During the winter holiday season, the BIA holds the annual Santa Parade in the spirit of the holidays.
