Kent Chamber sets meeting about LID to pay for street projects
The Kent Chamber of Commerce will have a special government affairs meeting to discuss the potential formation of a local improvement district (LID) by the city of Kent to help pay for railroad-grade separations.
The public meeting is from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27, at City Council Chambers at City Hall, 220 Fourth Ave. S.
Kent city officials are considering forming a LID to charge an extra property tax fee to commercial and manufacturing property owners who would benefit from projects along South 212th and 228th streets that would separate vehicles from trains by moving a road either over or under the railroad tracks.
At the meeting, property owners can find out about the possible impact of an LID to their business as well as benefits of railroad-grade separations.
For more information, contact Chamber CEO Andrea Keikkala at 253-854-1770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
