Welcome to the Soulard Community Improvement District
The mission for the Soulard Community Improvement District (CID) is to elevate Soulard as the thriving community it has long been for people to live, work, and play. Established in 2019, the CID funds projects to improve quality of life and foster a friendly business environment and visitor experience. The CID coordinates a wide range of proactive short-term and long-term projects including street lighting, infrastructure improvement, trash clean-up, traffic management, strategic planning and marketing.
Soulard already has a rich history as a popular, diverse and welcoming neighborhood. The CID is in place to improve upon that status and support its vibrancy looking ahead into the future. The CID is a political subdivision, established by the St. Louis Board of Alderman following a petition from property owners and mail-in election. It’s funded by a 1% sales tax at retailers within the district.
Soulard CID is a Reality!
