A brand new improvement district in Kendall Whittier is looking for property owners, business owners, residents and others to become founding members of the Board of Directors.
The Kendall Whittier Improvement District is an active assessment district that supports increased services in Kendall Whittier in order to create a more vibrant, walkable commercial district. It began July 1, 2022, and will continue through June 30, 2027.
Within the KWID boundaries, which can be found online here, commercial properties will receive a tax assessment. The money collected will be spent in seven key areas: Landscaping and trash removal, beautification, security services, lighting, parking lot maintenance and administration.
KWID has an annual budget of $48,000 and will be assessed each July for five years.
To administer the funds, a nonprofit organization named Kendall Whittier Improvement District, Inc. will be established. It is currently seeking volunteers to serve as a Board of Directors.
Board members will serve one- or two-year terms and should plan to attend six board meetings per year during their term as well as committee meetings as needed. Board membership is unpaid and on a volunteer basis.
Those interested in joining the Board should fill out this quick Google Form before Aug. 7. Board members will be selected and notified the following week using a pre-determined rubric.
The first Board of Directors meeting will be Aug. 30 from 5:30-8 p.m. It will include selecting officers, finalizing the bylaws and doing some strategic planning.
