CivicMic is working with the City of Diamond Bar (the “City”) to spread awareness about the dissolution of Landscape Assessment District No. 39 (“LAD No. 39”) (the “District”). We are also working to determine support for establishing a new district to completely fund, through annual assessments, the ongoing landscaping improvements and maintenance that the City is currently partially subsidizing.
LAD No. 39 funds the servicing and maintenance of various private properties and five developer-created mini-parks and trails. An Engineer’s Report is prepared to establish the budget for the improvements funded by assessments and other revenue. This report also determines the general and special benefits received from the improvements by property within the District and the method of assessment apportionment to lots and parcels. In this post, CivicMic shares the LAD No. 39 Engineer’s Report for 2021/22.
LAD No. 39 Engineer’s Report: Summary of Special Benefits
A. Proximity to improved landscaped areas and other public improvements within the District.
B. Access to improved landscaped areas and other public improvements within the District.
C. Improved views within the District.
D. Extension of a property’s outdoor areas and green spaces for properties within close proximity to the improvements.
E. Safety and security within the District.
F. Creation of individual lots for residential and commercial use that, in absence of the assessments, would not have been created.
There are more details about these special benefits, along with other useful information in the Engineer’s Report.
