Troost Ave. Improvement District
The Troost Ave. CID is a political subdivision led by a volunteer board representing the property owners, business owners and customers that fund the work that keeps our district safe, clean and thriving.
Established in 2013, in cooperation with the City of Kansas City, the Troost Avenue 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 supplemental services including weekly trash collection along the public right-of-way, an area awareness / supplemental security officer, and other supplementary services that help ensures a clean, safe and inviting district. The CID has been used successfully on Troost Avenue to improve the district’s overall image within the community.

More About CIDs
The 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.
