The Downtown Worcester Business Improvement District has named Evelyn Darling as its executive director as the group plans its formal launch in May. The district's efforts will be funded through a tax surcharge on the properties in the 78-acre district, which is estimated to generate about $950,000 a year. With that money, the district anticipates putting on marketing campaigns and events, as well as funding so-called ambassadors who will roam the streets cleaning and offering directions and tips to people downtown.
Will the efforts of the Downtown Worcester Business Improvement District be worth the extra tax charges?
