Why form an improvement district?
Neighborhoods should consider forming an LID to fund improvements that would benefit each property owner. LIDs have several advantages. Perhaps the biggest benefits to those needing the improvements is the LIDs provide a means of spreading the cost of the Improvements among several property owners. This reduces the cost of improvements compared to the cost of charging an individual property owner.
