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 3. In this installment, CivicMic will focus on proposed improvements to Fairfield's landscape and lighting districts.

What Does the Engineer's Report LLMD 3 Contain?

The engineer's report LLMD 3 contains improvements. These refer to the work that needs to be done to maintain and take care of trees and other landscaping features. Improvements are located in the public areas within the Landscape Maintenance District No. 2023-3 (Waterman Highlands) area. This includes mowing lawns, trimming bushes, pruning trees, and removing weeds. Essentially, improvements ensure that the landscaping features are healthy and attractive. The work also involves maintaining trails and open spaces throughout the district.

Where does the cost of this work come from? Cost includes paying personnel to perform these tasks, purchasing supplies like water and gas, and hiring contractors to do specific jobs when necessary. It also includes expenses related to the electricity needed to power tools and other equipment used in the work.

The district contains around 231 street trees and about 234,988 square feet of landscaping area that will be covered by the assessment funds. The landscaping improvements are located on the easterly and westerly sides of Ten Gate Road, northerly side of Waterman Boulevard, and westerly side of Hilborn Road.
