How much is the proposed assessment increase and how will it be determined?

An independent Engineer’s Report was prepared to outline the method of apportioning the assessments which calculates an amount that is proportionate to the special benefit any given parcel will receive from the district improvements.


The proposed rates for the new District are as follows:

District No. 39-2019 / Rate

  • Zone A = $387.39
  • (South of Grand Ave)

  • Zone B = $377.70
  • (between Grand Avenue and Pantera School)

  • Zone C = $358.34
  • (Pantera School area and north)


District 41-2019 / Rate

  • Single Family Home = $501.09
  • Condominium = $461.00


These assessments will replace the existing assessment, they are not combined.
