Doing Business in Martin City

Established in 2005, Martin City is a 300+-acre Community Improvement District with 75+ businesses within our boundaries. Martin City is NOT its own municipality. We were annexed into the city of Kansas City, Missouri in 1963. 

The Martin City CID’s mission is to serve as an economic development tool for landowners in the district to coordinate efforts to improve the area. Annual CID revenue streams come from a small property tax of $150 on each parcel ($22,000) and a retail sales tax assessment ($.005) that brings in approximately $240,000 for the district. Martin City generates approximately $50M in sales tax revenue annually for the city of Kansas City, Missouri.

We work with the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, MO, Jackson County, the City of KCMO, and the Land Clearance Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City to create and identify incentive opportunities to spur development in our district. View available incentives here

The CID is governed by a Board of Directors made up of 7 property owners representing the business interests of the district. They each serve 4-year terms and meet on the second Thursday monthly at Jess & Jim’s Steakhouse. The meetings are from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and are open to the public.
