Why is an Assessment District Proposed: Neptune Drive Shoreline Flood Protection

Today's post by CivicMic is one of many in the thematic series of the what, where, when, how, and why about the proposed formation of an assessment district to fund the construction of a levee near the intersection of Neptune Drive and Marina Boulevard. The intent of the thematic series is to answer your most pressing questions like...why has an assessment district been proposed?

The short version is that flood zone classifications have changed for many parcels along the San Leandro shoreline. Additional information can be found in this previous post by CivicMic: https://civicmic.com/flood-insurance-study-excerpts-neptune-drive-shoreline-flood-protection/.

Important: Formation of the proposed assessment district must be approved by the affected property owners. The City can't form an assessment district without property owner approval.

The construction of levees would remove the affected parcels from the new flood zone classification. You can see how the classification has changed by clicking on each parcel in the comparison map provided by the City (link provided below).

Note: Please zoom in to parcels in the area shown in purple by the shoreline. You must zoom in quite a bit and left-click on a parcel for the pop-up with the comparison information to show up.
