Metropolitan Improvement District Renewal

Founded by the Downtown Seattle Association in 1999 through a city of Seattle ordinance, the Metropolitan Improvement District is a business-improvement area in downtown Seattle spanning 285 square blocks in six downtown neighborhoods. With funding from commercial and residential property owners within the MID boundaries, DSA provides an array of services to ensure a clean, safe and welcoming downtown for all. The MID ordinance was renewed by the Seattle City Council in 2013 and is up for renewal in 2023.

The MID is managed by DSA. An advisory board of 35 property owners recommends an annual budget and work plan and provides ongoing input and oversight.

Please join downtown property owners, managers and residents virtually on Thursday, July 14, 2022 for a public meeting to discuss the renewal of downtown Seattle’s Metropolitan Improvement District.

Founded by the Downtown Seattle Association in 1999 through a city of Seattle ordinance, the MID is a business-improvement area in downtown Seattle spanning 285 square blocks in six downtown neighborhoods. The ordinance establishing the MID was renewed by the Seattle City Council in 2013 and is up for renewal in 2023.

Renewal requires support from ratepayers paying a majority of the assessment within the MID boundaries and ultimate approval by the Seattle City Council and Seattle mayor.

At this meeting you will:

  • Get an overview of the MID’s history and current scope of services
  • Learn more about the renewal process and timeline
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions of MID Board leaders and DSA/MID staff

We look forward to seeing you there. Please contact Emily Bailor at emilyb@downtownseattle.org with questions.
