The Arlington Tourism Improvement District (ATPID) is a public improvement district formed to promote and assist in building and sustaining hotel and tourism business for the City of Arlington. ATPID conducts and enables all activities that support this endeavor, including but not limited to sales and marketing endeavors.
The ATPID is supported by a 2% TPID assessment fee on net occupancy receipts from sleeping rooms that are subject to Hotel Occupancy Tax from hotels within the city of Arlington with 75 rooms or more.
ATPID is also governed by a board of directors consisting of participating ATPID hotel/motel members that direct the use of all funds generated. The City of Arlington authorized the creation of the District and must annually approve a budget.
The board has contracted with the City to collect the funds, and with the Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau to administer the programs and use of the funds.
