The Mimico Village By the Lake BIA established in 1985 is situated on Lakeshore Blvd., between Allen Avenue and Alexander Street. Its mandate is to work with businesses to improve the area, attract residents to shop and to organize events that create and cultivate a community spirit.
The BIA and local community organizations have come together over the last couple of years, and have started an annual tree lighting tradition on the Lakeshore. The BIA is also a member of the Joint Lakeshore BIA committee that produces and distributes a quarterly local newspaper to keep the community informed and connected.
As part of the BIA capital improvement plan for the area, the BIA installed a new type of lighting as part of a multi-phased improvement program.
