The City designates Benefit District areas as a fair method to:
  • Pay for infrastructure associated with new development.
  • Protect residents in established areas from an obligation to pay for development in new areas.
General Obligation Bonds (GO Bonds) are issued by the City for construction of public improvements.
  • The costs are assessed to the properties that benefit from the development. 
  • The City retires the GO Bonds through the payments of special assessments.
Examples of Benefit District development include:
  • arterial roadways
  • water lines
  • sanitary sewers
