CivicMic works with The City of Pomona (the "City") to facilitate community outreach and public engagement opportunities for participation in the collaborative governance process for the Phillips Ranch community. In 1990, the City established a Consolidated Assessment District consisting of 6 individual landscape and lighting districts to fund certain landscape and lighting services. Phillips Ranch was included in two separate zones of these districts, Zone A & B. Over the years, maintenance costs and service levels have increased. Currently, maintenance costs for the district exceed assessment revenue resulting in the district not being able to continue to support the maintenance at the current assessment rate. The City is proposing the formation of a new assessment district, Phillips Ranch Landscape and Lighting Maintenance Assessment District ("Phillips Ranch LLMD"), with an increased maximum assessment rate which would generate sufficient revenue to support the increased levels of services and cost of maintenance.
