Public Improvement District (PID)
What is a PID?
Definition: A Public Improvement District (PID) is a defined geographic area, i.e. a neighborhood, within which public improvements may be financed through the use of special assessments.
Authority: The Texas Local Government Code (LGC), Chapter 372, authorizes municipal Governing Bodies (Cedar Hill City Council) to approve PIDs in their cities when it finds that the creation of the PID “promotes the interests of the municipality.”
Regulation: City Council adopted a PID Policy which establishes guidelines for PID operations.

A petition for the establishment of a PID must be submitted to the city and include the following:
