Special Improvement Districts

Special Improvement Districts (SIDs) get in the weeds–sometimes literally, pulling dandelions and planting flowers. SIDs also keep things spiffy and safe, working on things like power washing sidewalks, offering to walk someone to their car or bus after

a late night or helping someone who is down on their luck. And they solve all kinds of other problems for property owners, who pay for services through property assessments.
