The High Pointe Public Improvement District PID Number 1 Election has been canceled. The election was by acclamation.
In 1998, the residents of High Pointé subdivision petitioned to become the city's first 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
Assessment & Appraisal
The High Pointé PID, created October 13, 1998, has a current assessment of $0.10 per $100 valuation. Example:
Appraised value $150,000 divided by $100 multiplied by $0.10 equals $150 per year
The PID is governed by five to seven, at-large directors appointed by the Cedar Hill City Council to serve for a period of two years, subject to the terms and conditions of the City Council approved by-laws established for the district.
