LAD No. 39-2022 Ballot Results

A total of 44.2% of property owners in the district cast their ballots. The 545 ballots received were tabulated and weighted in proportion to the assessment amount for each parcel. Of the ballots received, 283 were in favor of the LAD No. 39-2022, and 262 were in opposition. This means that 52% of the property owners casting ballots were in support of the new district. As a result, this initiative passed and the formation of LAD No. 39-2022 will be moving forward.

 

LAD No. 39 Dissolution and LAD No. 39-2022 Formation

CivicMic works with The City of Diamond Bar (the "City") to facilitate community outreach and public engagement opportunities for participation in the collaborative governance process for the dissolution of Landscape Assessment District No. 39 (the "District")("LAD No.39") and its proposed replacement with Landscape Assessment District No. 39-2022 to fund certain landscaping services and maintenance. Currently, the District funds the servicing and maintenance of various private properties and maintains five developer-created mini-parks and trails. While the assessment fee remained locked at its original amount during the past decades, maintenance costs continued to increase. This created a shortfall in funds between District assessments and maintenance costs. The City can no longer continue to subsidize what should be a self-supporting District. The current District is comprised of 1,249 parcels with an annual assessment rate of $236 per parcel. Without the establishment of a new assessment district following the dissolution of the District, the current services will no longer be provided by the City.
