description: A Local Improvement District (LID) is a method by which a group of property owners can share in the cost of infrastructure improvements, most commonly for transportation and stormwater. This involves improving the street, building sidewalks, and installing a stormwater management system. An LID can also be used to install sidewalks on existing streets that previously have been accepted for maintenance by the City. Financing is offered for up to 20 years, with the first payment not due until after the project is complete.LIDs are most commonly used to improve unpaved streets. If an LID is formed, the City manages the design and construction of the project, and property owners do not pay until the work is complete. Streets can also be improved under a permit job, in which case the project is privately managed and financed up front by property owners. LIDs have also been successfully used to provide sanitary sewer, water main improvements, traffic signal and utility undergrounding improvements in conjunction with street improvements for economies of scale to provide comprehensive and complete infrastructure solutions to neighborhoods. --Additional Information: Category: Transportation - Right-of-Way Management Purpose: For mapping the boundaries of the Local Improvement Districts in Portland.
