In California, an assessment district is a group of properties that are charged a special assessment to pay for specific services or improvements specific to the needs in their area. Here we will break down the assessment district weighted amounts (North Cordelia, LLMD-13).
To approve an assessment district, property owners submit a ballot to cast their “yes” or “no” position. Each property owner's ballot is weighted based on the amount of the assessment that they would pay if the assessment were approved. The more an owner would pay, the more weight their returned ballot carries in the tally.
It was requested by property owners that we break down the share of the total assessment by property type. We want to be very clear that this is a breakdown of the share of the total assessment. The ballot tabulation will be completed using only ballots which are returned, so the share of total assessment may not reflect the share of ballots cast.
For an assessment district to be approved, the total amount of assessments represented by the ballots returned in favor of the assessment must be greater than the total amount represented by the ballots returned against the assessment. This ensures that property owners with the largest stake in the assessment have a greater say in whether it is approved.

Thank you for providing the break down of property type as a % of Total Assessment, since I inquired regarding this data at the public meeting at Cordelia Library on March 2nd. The 32% of Commercial property could have a major impact if they choose to return their ballots and only a small % of Single Family Residences return their ballot in favor. Hopefully the majority ballots will be in favor of the special assessment to pay for landscape and lighting services in the North Cordelia.
