The costs of the services and improvements by the Deep Ellum Public Improvement District (District) will be paid primarily by special assessment against properties in the District. Annual assessments are based on the total value of real property and real property improvements as determined by the Dallas Central Appraisal District.
The District's proposed assessment rate for 2021 is $0.12 per $100 of appraised value. Once levied, this assessment rate shall not increase during the 2022 Service Plan year.
The City of Dallas is not responsible for payment of assessment against exempt City property in the District because City right-of-way, railroad right-of-way, City parks and cemeteries are not specially benefitted. Payment of assessments by other tax-exempt jurisdictions and entities must be established by contract.
