The Uptown Corridor Improvement District (CID) allows the use of tax increment financing (TIF) to make capital improvements within our established commercial district. A CID is designed to assist development by reinvesting the tax dollars the city already collects right back into our district. The CID is governed by a city-appointed board called a Corridor Improvement Authority (CIA), which is comprised of local property owners, business owners, and one resident of the district.
The Uptown Business Improvement District (BID) is a district made up of non-residential properties in a defined geographic boundary. Property owners in Uptown came together and used the city’s assessment powers to assess themselves. This self-funding mechanism is used to maintain, develop, and promote the district. It does not replace city services, but enhances the district as a destination place for shopping, dining, working, and living.
