Metro District Changes Adopted in 2021

On October 12, 2021, City Council adopted an ordinance amending the City's model service plan, model intergovernmental agreement, and Chapter 66 of the City Code for metropolitan districts ('metro districts'). The changes are intended to: 1) ensure homeowners are adequately informed about metro districts and tax obligations; 2) set limitations to protect homeowners from excessive tax burdens; and 3) ensure metro districts remain a viable tool for developers to fund necessary and required infrastructure and services.
