What is the Business Organization of Old Town (B.O.O.T.)?

The Business Organization of Old Town Clovis (B.O.O.T.) is a unique, non-profit, membership-based organization. Established in the late 1970s to represent and support the growing needs of Old Town Clovis merchants, B.O.O.T. has blossomed into an organization that encourages growth and development in Old Town Clovis and the surrounding area. By engaging in key committees within the City, B.O.O.T. is able to advocate for a unified vision, cooperation and consistency in long-range regional planning and decision-making for Old Town Clovis.

The Business Organization is supported primarily by City of Clovis, the dedication of merchant members and the revenues earned from hosting several successful Signature Events throughout the year. By operating with a clear vision and passion for enhancing the development of the greater Old Town area, B.O.O.T. has established itself as an economic force in Clovis. The boundaries for Old Town Clovis PBIA (Parking and Business Improvement Area) are Woodworth Avenue to the west, Clovis Avenue to the east, 3rd Street to the north and 7th Street to the south. Businesses located within the boundaries are encouraged to join B.O.O.T. The greater area of Old Town is loosely considered to be Barstow to the south and Sierra to the north; Sunnyside to the east and Villa to the west. Businesses outside of the PBIA can be Associate Members and enjoy the benefits of being part of the B.O.O.T.

B.O.O.T. is committed to providing value to its members at a minimal cost. Membership and core community values are what make this organization the most effective business organization for business owners.

B.O.O.T. member meetings are held once a month on the 4th Wednesday, at 6:30 pm unless otherwise communicated. Meetings are held at The Old Hotel Bistro at the corner of 4th Street and Pollasky Avenue in Old Town. Call the B.O.O.T. office for more information, 559.298.5774.
