Longmont General Improvement District #1 (GID)
The Longmont Downtown Development Authority manages the Longmont General Improvement District #1 (GID) on behalf of the Longmont City Council.
The GID is a distinct legal entity within the LDDA Boundary that is managed by LDDA. Within the GID, a 6.798 property tax mill levy assessment is collected. Revenues from the GID assessment are used for improvements such as enhanced streetscape and maintenance within the GID boundary.
Longmont GID was originally formed in 1966 to finance Downtown projects such as parking, beautification and landscaping, creation of mid-block pedestrian walkways and acquisition of necessary land and improvements in connection with these projects.
The City Council, acting as the GID Board of Directors, contracts with the LDDA to carry out the functions of the GID. The original bonded indebtedness, incurred in 1967, was paid off at the end of 1991. The parking lots, breezeways, beautification and streetscape programs are funded in part by a mill levy collected within the GID.
