Skypark Assessment District
In 1995, City Council formed the Skypark Open Space Maintenance Assessment District No. 1 and subsequently authorized the levy and collection of an assessment to maintain the open space district. The revenue collected to maintain the district includes Linear Park, two greenbelt areas, and a self-insurance fund in the event of a slope failure. The assessment district is formed pursuant to the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972 and must be renewed annually.
Pinewood Estates Assessment District
In 1987, Resolution 1213 was adopted by City Council to form the Pinewood Estates Assessment District pursuant to the Landscape and Lighting Act of 1972. The District improvements, which generally consist of ornamental landscaping, irrigation equipment, signs, fences, and storm detention ponds, were dedicated to the City by the developer of Pinewood Estates subdivision. These improvements were planted/constructed in the right-of-way of Lockewood Lane and in landscaping easements from the subdivision. The district participants are the twenty-five Pinewood Estates homeowners, who are being assessed for the cost of maintaining the improvements.
Each year, an Annual Engineer’s Report is filed, which includes an estimate of expenses to be paid by the districts, a description of the work to be performed or improvements to be made, and benefit assessment, outlining the proposed budget for the cost of maintaining, repairing, and operating any public improvements.
