Public Infrastructure Districts (PIDs)

A Public Infrastructure District (PID) is a local government entity created to organize financing for public improvements in a specific community. A PID is governed by community members and has the power to levy additional property taxes, impose fees, and issue bonds. 

Utah Code §17D-4 establishes the parameters for PIDs in Utah. PIDs are similar to Community Reinvestment Agencies, Special Service Districts, and other limited-purpose local government entities. 

Special Note: The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman has provided funding for this training program from the 1% surcharge on all building permits in the State of Utah.
