Welcome to Understanding the Engineer's Report, a series that explores the technical language and concepts in the essential document known as the engineer's report: LLMD 11. In this installment, CivicMic will focus on proposed improvements to Fairfield's landscape and lighting districts. You can find the report here.
What Does the Engineer's Report LLMD 11 Contain?
The engineer's report LLMD 11 contains improvements, which specifically refer to the work that needs to be done to maintain and take care of trees and other landscaping features. These are located in the public areas within the Landscape Maintenance District No. 2023-11 (LMD 11, Paradise Valley) area. The assessments discussed in the report will provide funding for the maintenance, operation, and servicing of two things: street lighting, and street trees and landscaping.
The street lighting improvements will include maintenance and service of street lights, including decorative light poles and other facilities located in public areas within the district. This includes everything needed to light up public places such as poles, wires, transformers, switches, and more.
Maintenance activities will involve changing bulbs, cleaning fixtures, and repairing any damages to ensure the lighting is safe and functional. There are currently 368 streetlights within the district.
The landscaping improvements will include maintaining and servicing street trees, open spaces, trails, and green belt areas within the Paradise Valley. This includes maintaining trees, shrubs, planters, and landscaped areas. Maintenance activities may also involve sidewalk and hardscape improvements, entry monuments, and associated facilities. The district has around 1,875 street trees and approximately 910,964 square feet of landscape maintenance area.
Overall, the assessments will provide the necessary funding to keep the street lighting and landscaping features in good condition within the district.
