Iowa Legislative update – Second this week

Bills recently introduced:

HF208 allows the inclusion of of residential property in new or amended self-supported municipal improvement districts (SSMIDs), and allows cities to amend existing ordinances creating the SSMID to tax the residential property as part of the SSMID (with exceptions).

SF233 does a lot of things, but relevant to city planning it adds due process and clarity to the process for addressing abandoned nuisance properties, and expands the reach of the process to commercial properties (currently applies only to residential properties).
