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 8. 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 8 Contain?
The engineer's report LLMD 8 contains improvements, which specifically refer to the work that needs to be done to maintain trees and other landscaping features. These are located in the public areas within the Landscape Maintenance District No. 2023-8 (Kolob Estates) 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.
- Street lighting: This includes the maintenance, operation, and servicing of streetlights, including decorative light poles and other facilities in public areas within the district. It includes everything needed to make the lights work properly, such as changing light bulbs, painting poles, cleaning fixtures, and repairing any damages. There are currently 23 streetlights within the district.
- Street trees and landscaping: This includes the maintenance, operation, and servicing of trees and other landscaping features in public areas within the district. This includes things like maintaining the green spaces, watering plants, trimming trees and shrubs, and removing weeds. This also includes any sidewalks, hardscapes, or entry monuments associated with the landscaping. There are 151 street trees within the district, and the total area of landscaping maintenance is about 96,053 square feet.
Overall, the assessments will provide the necessary funding to keep the street lighting and landscaping features in good condition within the district.
