Landscaping & Lighting
Maintenance District No. 89-1-Consolidated
(L&LMD No. 89-1-C)
A Brief History
Information regarding the annexation of a new zone to Landscaping and Lighting Maintenance District No. 89-1-Consolidated (L&LMD No. 89-1-C), a countywide assessment district under the Landscaping and Lighting act of 1972 (1972 Act) and State of California Proposition 218, the "Right to Vote on Taxes Act" is detailed below.
The 1972 Act permits the formation of L&LMD No. 89-1-C, and annexation to said district, to finance the installation, maintenance and servicing of landscaping, trails, fencing, irrigation, streetlights, traffic signals, bridge lights, graffiti abatement, bio-swales, and fossil filters through annual assessments on real property within the district. The annual assessment for each zone in the L&LMD No. 89-1-C is based on the estimated specific benefit to each parcel, Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) or acre and not on property valuation.
As of 1996, State of California Proposition 218 requires that all parcel assessments, such as L&LMD No. 89-1-C assessments, be presented to the property owners for their authorization in order to levy a parcel assessment. A "Special Election" is conducted to ascertain if 51% of the affected property owners are in favor of an annual assessment for L&LMD No. 89-1-C being added to their property taxes. Elections will be conducted in the same year the application for annexation is submitted.
An approved L&LMD No. 89-1-C annual assessment is subject to the greater of an annual inflation escalator of 2% or the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U or CPI-U for "electricity") as it stands on March of each year over the base Index for March in the election year. Any increase larger than the greater of 2% or the "CPI-U" (or CPI-U for "electricity") annual adjustment requires a majority approval of all the property owners within each zone of L&LMD No. 89-1-C.
