What is an Special Improvement District (SID)
Special Improvement Districts (SIDs) serve two primary functions. The first is the creation of some form of infrastructure, such as sewer lines or roads. The second is for the maintenance of some facility or service the City provides, such as street lighting.
SIDs are created by action of the City Council. First, a resolution of intent is passed and advertised in the newspaper. This notifies the people who will be effected by the SID. Citizens have the opportunity to protest and make public comments. If the protest hasn't been sufficient to cancel the project a final resolution is passed.
