Since 2008, the Kailua Village Business Improvement District has worked to provide clean and safe community initiatives. Now, the organization has submitted three Requests for Proposals to continue their work. The requests include janitorial landscape maintenance and security services to assist the district in continuing their clean and safe initiatives through 2017.

“The Kailua Village Business Improvement District has provided clean and safe initiatives for the past eight years,” said Riley Smith, KVBID president. “We open this competitive contract review every two years and we expect to receive several inquiries. KVBID invites all qualified companies to submit their proposals. Contract services performed on behalf of KVBID enhance the valuable work that is done by the County of Hawai’i. ”

Boundaries within KVBID include the area between Kmart and the Royal Kona Resort. The group’s stakeholders include all landowners in the district boundaries, lessees of land, commercial tenants, residents, policymakers, government officials, partner organizations, and the general public.

Contract proposals will be evaluated by KVBID’s Program Services Committee and the Board of Directors will make the final selection before the end of 2015.

KVBDI works to make Kailua Village a model sustainable community that is a better place to invest, work, live, and play. The organization works cooperatively to improve and maintain the physical appearance and aesthetics of public right of ways, open space and parks, increase cleanliness and security, and attract long term sustainable business and community activity in Kailua Village.
