Public Infrastructure Districts

Public Infrastructure Districts (PIDs) are relatively new in Utah. The creation of these districts, referred to as PIDs, was first allowed through a 2019 bill passed by the Utah Legislature.  Public Infrastructure Districts allows cities, counties, and developmental authorities the ability to finance new infrastructure that is used for public use. These can be upgrades to roads, water and wastewater systems, utilities, public transportation or parks.  This infrastructure may be financed by issuing bonds that are repayable from property taxes or assessments on the property within the public infrastructure district or by using tax increment financing proceeds.

The policy and application process is outlined in the links below:
