Public Improvement Districts
The Fort Worth Public Improvement District (PID #1), founded and administered by DFWI in 1986, offers a comprehensive program of services including maintenance and landscaping, security enhancements, market research, public space management, communications and marketing, transportation solutions, and planning.
Property owners within the 335-block area pay a special assessment above their regular property taxes for a coordinated program of services . The assessment is collected by Tarrant County and transferred to the City of Fort Worth. The City contracts with Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. to provide and manage the enhanced services in Downtown.
