The Washington Park Neighborhood Improvement District (WP NID) was created to provide homeowner grants, local jobs, resources for community planning and community improvement projects. The WP NID places an assessment of $50 per year onto existing residential units in the neighborhood and $100 per commercial parcel. In exchange for this modest assessment, the following will be provided:
•Strong Homes: 50% of the proceeds, or about $60,000 will be used to create a grant fund that will assist homeowners in making improvements to their homes.
•Strong Jobs: WP NID will work with pre-qualified contractors complete improvements and require that 50% of the workforce making the improvements be hired from the neighborhood or nearby.
•Strong Community: A portion of the WP NID funds will be used to support projects created by you.
