What if I do not want to participate in the LID?

Property owners will be given several opportunities to present their opposition to the LID. The first opportunity comes at the neighborhood meeting. This is an informal protest and is only used by the LID administrator to determine if the LID should be presented to City Council or not. The second opportunity comes at the formation hearing. Property owners must submit a written protest in addition to the optional verbal protest at the hearing. The final opportunity to protest formation of the LID comes after the formation hearing during the required 30-day protest period. Again, all protests must be submitted in writing to be considered. Note that, in any of these stages, no response is considered as being in favor of the LID.

Property owners should keep in mind that while a small number of properties may protest the formation of the LID the LID may still be formed if the majority of the properties are in favor the improvements.
