How do I start an LID?

LID’s are typically started with interested property owners approaching the City about desired improvements, usually in the form of a signed petition. The more property owners who are interested in the LID for a given area the more likely a successful formation will occur.

After the petition is received the City LID Administrator will hold an informal neighborhood meeting and send out an interest survey to all properties within the proposed LID boundary to judge the amount of properties in favor of the improvements. Generally, a response, in favor of the improvements, of at least 50% of the participating properties is required to move forward.

If the LID Administrator deems that the LID is likely to succeed, they will recommend to City Council that the LID be formed and a public formation hearing will be held.
