The Troost Avenue Community Improvement District was formed in 2013, serving Troost Avenue from 46th St. south to 75th St., and 63rd St. from Rockhill Rd. east to Pener Plaza. The District is currently providing trash, weeds, and graffiti removal five days a week by the Troost Avenue Troopers and a roving patrol by the Troost Avenue Titans.
The next steps taken by the Troost Avenue CID board of directors focuses on the promotion and marketing of the corridor. After the “request for design” contest, the new Troost Avenue brand was unveiled on June 19, 2015. Krista Schmidt from Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS was the award recipient. Her designs will be used in the near future on banners, clothing apparel, and other promotional materials.
The Troost Avenue Community Improvement District is managed by seven area business owners and operators in the district and powered by the Southtown Council. The district is funded by an additional ½ cent sales tax and an annual $150/parcel property tax. There are 183 parcels within the district and approximately 140 property owners.
