FAQs


What is a PID ?
A PID (Public Improvement District) is an area of landowners who self tax themselves for the overall improvement of the area. The Forum Estates PID is roughly bounded by Mayfield Rd on the north, Hwy 360 on the west (minus apartment complexes), Fish Creek (Prairie Creek) on the south, and the county line to the east. Check our map for location.


When/How was it created
The PID was created through a petition process that was signed by over 50% of the landowners in both acreage and value. It was verified and approved through the City of Grand Prairie in October 2001. First taxation took place in the tax collection of January 2002


Who runs it ?
A board made up of citizens from within the PID directs the expenditures of the PID for various improvements or services. A Management firm is used to contract vendors, monitor services, pay bills, provide accounting functions.


Where does my money go ?
PID taxes are collected through the Dallas County Tax rolls and then are transferred to a holding account with the City of Grand Prairie. Anticipated expenses are approved by the Board and drafted out to the Management firm to pay vendors on a monthly basis.


What will I get ?
Stable property values as the PID improves the common areas of the our neighborhoods, better and more consistent lawn maintenance of the city right of way areas (the city contributes what they would have spent on these areas) long-term maintenance of the landscaping put in by developers (normally abandoned after sale of all the homes), other services that citizens desire- security patrols, entry way signs, common wall repair etc.


How can I get involved ?


Volunteers are needed to help research items that the Board may want to address. Volunteers will be first choice in replacing Board Members who are no longer able to serve. Bring items of concern with your neighborhood to the Board's attention - we can help !!
