Forming the Dutchtown CID

With the help of many dedicated volunteers and community leaders, the Dutchtown Community Improvement District was officially established by City of St. Louis Ordinance 70559 on June 9th, 2017, and became effective on July 21st, 2017. The Dutchtown CID was created through the circulation and approval of a petition by more than 51% of property owners within the CID boundaries to implement a special real estate tax assessment that will allow the CID Board of Directors to focus on three major priorities: safety and security, maintenance and beautification, and marketing and development. 

Board of Directors and Committees

The Board of Directors is comprised of residents, business owners, and property owners with a vested interest in the Dutchtown neighborhood. The Board receives input from the Dutchtown Committees regarding issues such as safety, promotion, and physical assets.

Get Involved with the CID

If you would like to get involved in the revitalization efforts of the Dutchtown neighborhood or have feedback about the Dutchtown CID’s initiatives, board meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month, 6pm at the Neighborhood Innovation Center at 3207 Meramec Street. Visit the DutchtownSTL Calendar or the DutchtownSTL Facebook page for the latest information on meeting times, agendas, and locations.

Thank you very much to all of the residents and property owners who supported the Dutchtown CID by signing the petition. We also owe a huge thank you to the board of DT2 • Downtown Dutchtown who envisioned the CID and made it a reality. 

Stay tuned for exciting updates!  While progress doesn’t happen overnight, we are one step closer toward long term community improvement.
