Understanding the Engineer’s Report: LLMD 5 (Rancho Solano)

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

What Does the Engineer's Report LLMD 5 Contain?

The engineer's report LLMD 5 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 areas within the Landscape Maintenance District No. 2023-5 (Rancho Solano/Smith Ranch). The report proposes various improvements to maintain street lighting, street trees, and other landscaping in areas indicated in the map below. Examples include fixing broken poles and fixtures, changing bulbs, and cleaning lights. Additional proposals include maintaining trees, plants, and other landscaping in public areas such as medians, sidewalks, and parks.

The district has 46 streetlights. Landscaping improvements cover several locations such as median islands, parkway strips, open spaces, and slopes. Please note that Rancho Solano Golf Course is not included in the proposed improvements.

Approximately 2,268 street trees and 3,000,931 square feet of landscape maintenance area are within the district. Property owners in the district will be asked to pay for these improvements through an increase in assessments.

Overall, the assessments will provide the necessary funding to keep the street lighting and landscaping features in good condition within the district.
