The Lilburn City Council voted Jan. 8 to continue participation in the Lilburn Community Improvement District. The resolution will accompany the CID’s application for an Atlanta Regional Commission transportation planning grant, which will fund a five-year update to the Highway 29 Corridor of Opportunity Study. The updated plan outlines efforts by the CID and city to provide a balanced transportation system, enhance access, improve safety, encourage economic development, and promote quality of life.

The Lilburn CID was formed by commercial property owners who agreed to impose a self-tax in addition to their commercial property tax. These funds are used to finance improvements that directly enhance property values by allowing property owners to determine how funds are spent in their area. The CID also has the ability to use funds to effectively leverage additional public and private funds.
