General Improvement Districts

General Improvement Districts (GIDs) are local taxing entities created for the purpose of constructing, operating or maintaining specific public improvements or certain services within a district.

A General Improvement District may be an option to complete a large, costly project that will protect and enhance the health, safety and welfare of inhabitants in Centennial. The City encourages neighborhoods considering a General Improvement District to contact the City early on to determine if a GID is the most appropriate funding mechanism for proposed improvements and to review next steps and expectations.

Under state law, the City is responsible for the governance and fiscal oversight of GIDs.
