EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Business Improvement Districts (BID’s) are organized for the benefit of commercial properties to assist with infrastructure improvements and their maintenance, as well as having the ability to perform marketing and economic development activities.  This is the annual operating plan and budget for Cherry Creek North (CCN).

 

General Description of District and Location: The Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District is located just southeast of central downtown Denver and covers a 16- block area.  The BID boundaries generally are University Boulevard on the west, Steele Street on the east, between 1st and 3rd Ave.

 

The BID is a mixed-use area including retail, office and residential development that was originally created to fund and maintain streetscape improvements installed in 1989. Since then the BID has experienced significant growth prompting the District to implement a Capital Improvement Plan to revitalize the area.  Improvements constructed in 2010-2011 totaled $18.5M and included: improvements to Fillmore Plaza, streetscape enhancements, lighting, signage and directories.  The District issued bonds to finance this work and through the years has advance refunded the original bonds to take advantage of interest rate and maturity savings.  As of year-end 2018, the district had $14,290,000 in principal debt outstanding.    

 

The BID also provides services such as:

                     Maintenance

                     Marketing & advertising of district events & programs

                     Security for businesses & public areas within the District

                     Parking for District customers

                     Snow & trash collection.

 

Operations and improvements of the BID are financed by a mill levy assessed only on commercial real property within the District. The district plans to assess a 15.142 total mill levy during 2020. The total budgeted expenditures for 2020 are $6,524,242.

 

District Structure: The Board of Directors oversees the operations of the District.  These duties include annually recommending the mill levy to be imposed to support operational activities, a work plan, and a budget. The current Board of Directors is composed of 10 electors.

                     

For all BIDs that have mill levies: City Council will pass a resolution in December to levy all special district mill levies for the 2020 budget year.
