Grove Community Improvement District:
The Grove CID is a political subdivision of the State of Missouri established by the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen, and approved by the Mayor, at the request of a majority of the property owners in the proposed district and after a duly noticed public hearing.
The Grove CID is located in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood in the City of St. Louis. The CID boundaries generally run along both sides of Manchester between Kingshighway on the west and slightly past Vandeventer on the east.
The Grove CID is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors originally named in the Ordinance and thus appointed; but hereafter all successor Directors will be appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Aldermen. All Directors must be property owners and/or business operators within the District, or their representatives.
The Grove CID is funded primarily by a 1% Sales Tax approved by the registered voters residing in the District and collected on all retail sales in the District, and an annual Special Assessment imposed on District real property; however, direct appropriations of revenue from the City of St. Louis, private tax-deductible cash donations and grants are also accepted.
The CID may fund and/or manage a number of services and projects within the District including, but not limited to, the following:
- Provide security patrols, personnel & equipment;
- Provide for weed abatement, litter control and additional trash collection;
- Provide additional off-street parking;
- Market CID businesses;
- Fund special events; and
- Promote business retention and development.
