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.
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.
President Rob Paterson presided over the Cloverdale BIA’s 2015 Annual General Meeting. Members approved a budget for 2015 that included some significant changes. The BIA is shifting resources to several beautification initiatives that include a new Gateway sign (“Welcome to Cloverdale”) for the NW corner of Highway #10 and Highway #15 (at the Brick Yard Station mall). There will also be several landscaping projects along Highway #10 and the Cloverdale By-pass over the next 2 years. Due to a shortfall in sponsorship commitments the BIA regrets to announce the postponements of the 2015 Cloverdale Blueberry Festival and the 2015 Halloween Costume Parade. The BIA also announced that it will increase efforts and resources to recruit more businesses and residents for the Cloverdale Business Improvement Area. The Society will also increase resources for Safety/Security and Crime Prevention initiatives.

"Cleaner and more attractive" is one of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association's top priorities for 2015. The BIA continues to financially partner with the City of Surrey on a number of beautification initiatives like annual Hanging Baskets mounted on street poles on the historic 176 main street. The most recent landscaping bed to make the Town Centre a beautiful 24-hour live/work environment was completed just prior to the Rodeo at the corner of Highway #10 and 180 Street in front of Stampede Tack & Western Wear. The BIA Beautification Plan will be to enhance entry points to the Town Centre with small Gateway signs. One of the first to be considered will be across from the 180 St./Hwy #10 landscaping bed at Kal Tire. The BIA has been working with the City of Surrey Civic Beautification Planner Shira Standfield on a number of initiatives that will be carried out over a 5 year period. The biggest project on the books is to build a large Gateway sign at the corner of Highway #10 and the Cloverdale By-pass. This project will take some time to complete and will include a photo worthy gateway sign with landscaping, and night lighting. Another short term beautification idea is to add decorative screening (new & old pictures of downtown Cloverdale screen printed on fabric) around the Cloverdale West Village site (formerly the Safeway mall) with the help of the Surrey City Development Corporation. The BIA is starting to work on a 5 year Strategic Plan that will create a road map for the business association and will create a balance of programs that will include beautification projects throughout the Town Centre.
