CivicMic has been working with the City of Hesperia since December 2019 to facilitate community outreach and public engagement opportunities to determine the level of public support for the proposed formation of a Community Facilities District to fund improvements and maintenance of the Hesperia Golf & Country Club.
Important: The formation of the proposed Community Facilities District must be approved by the affected voters. The City can't form a Community Facilities District without voter approval.

Maintenance Community Facilities District ("CFD") Formation Steps
The infographic below is generic for informational purposes and was not created for this specific project. The infographic reflects the general steps included in the formation process when a minority of residents are requesting the public agency to initiate proceedings. When residents initiate the formation process, it is not uncommon to have a steering committee formed to determine if there is sufficient support to move forward. The steering committee referenced in the infographic is not a requirement. There is no citizen steering committee for this project because the public agency has initiated the formation process. The outreach currently being conducted is intended to determine if there is support by the nearby residents for a special tax to assist the general fund with funding to keep the golf and country club open.
