The Dallas Downtown Improvement District (DDID), created in 1992 (renewed 2001, 2006, 2013 & 2020), funds supplemental services and amenities that have helped to create and sustain Downtown Dallas as a dynamic, mixed-use neighborhood. The assessment paid by properties in the DDID funds safety and cleaning programs, transportation enhancements, park and public space beautification and management, economic planning, promotion of Downtown Dallas special events, and related services approved by the Dallas City Council. The DDID is managed by Downtown Dallas, Inc.

The current DDID term runs until December 31, 2027, with annual budget and assessment rate subject to a public hearing and Dallas City Council approval.

Annual Assessment Rate

The costs of the services and improvements by the Dallas Downtown Improvement District (District) will be paid primarily by special assessment against properties in the District. Annual assessments are based on the total value of real property and real property improvements as determined by the Dallas Central Appraisal District.

The District’s proposed assessment rate for 2023 is $0.129 per $100 of appraised value. Once levied, this assessment rate shall not increase during the 2024 Service Plan year.

The City of Dallas has agreed to pay assessments against exempt municipal property in the District. City rights-of-way, railroad right-of-way, and cemeteries are not specially benefitted and therefore are not subject to assessment. Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and Dallas College are tax-exempt properties; they have agreed to participate in the District voluntarily for the services they are receiving. Payment of assessments by other tax-exempt jurisdictions must be established by contract.
