Explanation
BACKGROUND: This Council is being asked to approve the Plan of Services (Attached) to be provided by the Short North Special Improvement District (SID); and to approve the properties of the municipal corporation in said plan of services.

A companion legislation is being presented simultaneously that approves the Petition and Articles of Incorporation that are on file with the Clerk of the Columbus City Council.

In 1998 the Short North Special Improvement District (SID) was created for a term of 12 years through 2011. In 2011 the property owners sought and obtained reauthorization for a period of five years. In 2016 the Short North SID was reauthorized for another five years. The petition to reauthorize the SID and Articles of Incorporation was approved by City Council by Ordinance No. 0612-2016, passed March 14, 2016. City Council also approved the Plan of Services to be provided by the Short North SID by Resolution No. 0044X-2016, passed March 21, 2016. The necessity to implement the Plan of Services and to levy a special assessment for the improvements and services was approved by City Council by Resolution No. 0099X-2016, passed May 2, 2016. A final piece of legislation, providing for the levy of assessment to property owners, was approved by City Council by Ordinance No. 1580-2016, passed June 20, 2016.
