The Eisenhower Business Improvement District (EBID) represents an important movement by property owners and business leader’s in Macon’s Eisenhower Business Corridor – Eisenhower Parkway from I-475 to Oglesby Place. This movement will rebuild a positive perception of the Eisenhower Commercial Corridor, supplement city services to raise the standard of excellence, encourage business recruitment and retention, and promote businesses in response to challenges from other competitive developments.

Retaining Current Macon Businesses

Every EBID business plays an important role in the vitality of the area and more importantly our community. EBID is able to maintain focus of the current and rising needs of our businesses through our Board of Directors made up of property and business owners in the district.

We strive to keep open lines of communication with our businesses to adequately address needs and ensure we are the best place to grow and serve the community and visitors.

Recruiting New Business

Eisenhower BID works diligently to create a beautiful, well maintained, safe and inviting area for our community, visitors and businesses new and old. We are currently working with Nextsite to develop a Market Study as a recruiting tool for interested investors and developers. EBID works with our property owners, commercial real estate representatives, local government and economic development agencies to ensure we are actively recruiting the perfect business and investments for our area.


The Eisenhower Business Improvement District’s mission is to revitalize the community and retain and recruit businesses. We know that the heartbeat of every city is the people who work, live, and play in the area, and that includes our dedicated business owners in the Eisenhower district. Our focus is to beautify the area, make it safer for all citizens and visitors, and help market the businesses that have teamed with EBID.
