about the CID
What is a CID?
A Community Improvement District (CID) is the most powerful public-private partnership tool today that is used successfully to revitalize activity centers. It is a proven and effective method for financing improvements that directly enhance property values by allowing property owners to determine how funds are spent in their area. CID funds can augment existing services such as public safety and they can also be used to leverage additional public and private funds. Conservatively, CID funds can be used to leverage such funds at a ratio of 10 to 1.
