Council Vote: Uptown Public Improvement District

Today the city council considered whether to approve the renewal of the Uptown Public Improvement District for another seven years.

The Uptown PID was created in 1993 and is one of five PIDs in Dallas. PIDs are created through a petition process by property owners. The property owners pay an additional tax on their property, and the extra taxes are used within the district to go above and beyond existing City services.

Uptown’s PID has been very successful, and the funds have been used to hire off-duty police officers, beautification efforts, McKinney Avenue reconstruction, and the trolley.

My congratulations and thanks to Uptown PID Executive Director Tracy Curts for a job well done.

ACTION: I moved to approve (passed unanimously)
