Community Improvement Districts

The Troost Ave. CID is a political subdivision led by a volunteer board representing the property owners, business owners and customers of Troost Ave. that fund the work that keeps our district safe, clean and thriving.

What is a CID?

Troost CID ButtonsThe International Downtown Association estimates that more than 1,000 Community Improvement Districts (CID’s) currently operate throughout the United States and Canada. A CID provides enhanced improvements and activities, such as economic development, parking management, maintenance and marketing, in addition to those provided by local government. CID’s are proven to work by providing services that improve the overall viability of business districts – resulting in higher property values, occupancies and sales.

Troost Ave. Improvement District

Established in 2014, in cooperation with the City of Kansas City, the Troost Ave. Community Improvement District is a special assessment district that conveys benefits to the properties located within the district boundaries. The management of the CID provides networking and communication along with daily trash and weed removal, area awareness officers and anything that ensures a clean, safe and inviting district. The CID has been used successfully on Troost Ave. to improve the district’s overall image of the community.
