A Property & Business Improvement District (PBID) is an assessment district which would provide additional services above and beyond the level the City provides, within a defined area. The services would be funded by an assessment on real property, which appears on property tax bills. PBIDs are proven to work by providing services that improve the overall viability of commercial districts, resulting in higher property values and sales volumes. PBIDs provide funding for programs which work efficiently to maintain the area as a safe and inviting environment. The services are chosen by property owners and customized to fit the needs of the district. All services are designed to provide direct benefits to those who pay into the PBID.
