Community Improvement District

A Community Improvement District (CID) allows a commercial property owner to petition the City to levy special assessments or impose up to an additional 2% sales tax within a CID to fund eligible project costs.  These costs may include infrastructure, design, engineering, and construction-related activities.  The Olathe City Council established its CID policy in 2009.
