CID/BID establishment will be voted on by the property owners who will pay the CID/BID levy.
The BID/CID is established for a fixed period of time (5 years), with a fixed budget for a specific set of activities. At the end of the term, a new budget and activities must be voted on by the membership in order for the BID/CID to continue operating.
Voting will be by a “negative vote” for CID/BID establishment, and also for subsequent votes on renewal. Only eligible voters who oppose the creation of the BID/CID will vote. Unless the opposing vote exceeds 40% of the total BID/CID units owned by property owners, the Hirafu CID/BID will be approved and established.
Voting rights will be given to the owner of CID units according to the number of units subject to the CID levy. In principal, one unit of housing (house, condominium, chalet, etc.) is regarded as one CID unit.
Voting rights will be given to the owner of BID units according to his/her ownership of BID units. The BID unit is determined by dividing the total BID levies of the BID members by the average accommodation room unit rate.
