High Pointé Public Improvement District #1

The First Public Improvement District
In 1998 the residents of High Pointé subdivision petitioned to become the city's first Public Improvement District (PID). The special district, established by State statute, levies an additional assessment on all properties within specific boundaries. Typically a percentage of the appraised value of the property, the assessment is reflected on the annual tax statement and confers a special benefit on definable parts of the improvement district.
Projects may include, but are not limited to:
  • Landscaping, erection of fountains, distinctive lighting, and signs
  • Acquisition or construction of sidewalks, streets, or other rights-of-way
  • Establishment or improvement of parks
  • Enhanced police patrol
Current Assessment
The High Pointé PID has a current assessment of 0.10¢ per $100 valuation. Example:
Appraised value $150,000 ÷ $100 x 0.10¢ = $150/yr . The annual operating budget for fiscal year 2009-2010 is estimated at $379,110, assuming 100% collection of proposed assessment roll.

PID Governing Body Regulations
The PID is governed by 5 to 7 at-large directors appointed by the Cedar Hill City Council to serve for a period of 2 years, subject to the terms and conditions of the City Council by-laws established for the district.
