The Downtown Improvement District (DID) is a funding tool Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. administers to keep certain areas of the urban core clean, attractive, and eventful. Funds go to support a uniformed Clean Team that leads daily sidewalk cleaning, landscaping and beautification, sidewalk snowmelt, restaurant and retail-oriented marketing and promotions, and special events.
Established by the City Commission in 2000 under state law, the DID’s sole revenue source is a special assessment on real property voluntarily approved by business and property owners within the DID district. City Commission approves the DID special assessment and budget. A 14-member Board appointed by the Mayor with concurrence from the City Commission govern the DID. The Board meets as needed. More details are on the City Clerk Page.
