The Livingston Business Improvement District (LBID) was formed in early 2011 with goal to perform a variety of services to improve the image of Livingston and promote the individual and unique businesses located in the downtown area. The MISSION of the LBID is to enhance the vitality of downtown Livingston by facilitating commerce, enhancing streetscapes, conducting maintenance and improving safety and security.
