Northlands General Improvement District

The Northlands General Improvement District was established in 2008 in order to collect funds to pay for planning Capital Improvements associated with extending sewer and water and gas services to the general area southwest of I-25 exit 49.

On May 20, 2008, City Council passed Resolution 2008 R-11, approving annexation of land north of the City limits generally known as the “Northlands”. The annexation was approved contingent on formation of a General Improvement District, which will pay for a lift station to allow wastewater from the Northlands and Dakota Users to be connected to and treated at the City’s wastewater treatment plant.

In 2016 and extending into 2017 the Northlands project is under construction and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.

For 2017 the city council did not certify a mill Levy.

With the establishment of the GID District property owners approved allowing the city a property tax of up 50 Mills which can be used to pay back debt from the GID.

This GID would most likely be dissolved when the debt for the Capital Improvement project is fully paid off.
