What is an MSTU?

A Municipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) is a funding mechanism for community members to create a special taxing district to make improvements to their neighborhood and/or community area through approval of the Board of County Commissioners. The Bayshore Beautification MSTU Advisory Committee is comprised of community members within the MSTU boundary. The committee meets monthly to discuss, plan, and approve capital improvement projects that are consistent with their enabling ordinance.

On October 25, 2022, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 2022-41 to add approximately 62 acres to the Bayshore MSTU boundary.  Please see the map of the proposed boundary expansion.
