Ferguson Community Profile

Ferguson Special Business District

The Ferguson Special Business District (FSBD)  was established in the downtown area in 1987. Its primary purpose is to promote the revitalization of downtown and the recruitment of additional new businesses.

All businesses located in the DB1 and DB2 Business Districts are members. An assessment of 50% of the cost of a Business License, up to a maximum of $2,000 is paid by these businesses to fund the district. These funds are used to promote and enhance the downtown area. These funds have been used to purchase banners, benches, trash cans, Vitorian style street lights, and many other items to beautify downtown Ferguson.
