Membership

Members of the proposed Niseko Hirafu CID/BID will be drawn from CID members (owners of residential buildings and land), BID members (owners of commercial building) and commercial tenant members.

BID members

All owners of commercial buildings in the BID area, whether or not the owner is registered as a resident or as a legal person in Hirafu. 

Tenant members: Commercial tenants in buildings in the Hirafu BID area are automatically members, since BID levies are charged to the owner/landlord. As a result, full membership benefits and opportunities are available to the tenant members as long as an application form is submitted. A voting right for commercial director may also be granted.

There are 2 types of BID Members:

  1. Accommodations
  2. Other Businesses: Restaurants, cafés, bars, retail shops, rental gear shops, outdoor recreation providers, schools, real estate businesses, other services and offices (excluding agriculture)

CID members

All owners of buildings and vacant land, whether or not the owner is registered as a resident or as a legal person in Hirafu. Please note that BID members are also automatically CID members. Commercial buildings and vacant land owned by a BID member in Hirafu are subject to the CID levy in addition to the BID levy.
