Keeping Our City Bright, Safe and Green


The City off Reedley annually levies and collects special assessments in order to maintain certain improvements (such as: street lighting, planting materials, irrigation systems, drainage systems, detention basins, open spaces and public pedestrian/bike paths) within the Landscape and Lighting Maintenance District (LLMD) No. 1 of the City of Reedley.
The District was formed on March 26, 1991 and annual assessments are established pursuant to the Landscape and Lighting Act of 1972, Part 2 of Division 15 of the California Streets and Highways Code. The idea is to achieve economy of scale by combining the efforts for all maintenance services within separate geographic locations (individually, “Zones”). A single landscape maintenance contractor provides most services and the contract is awarded and/or renewed annually.
LLMD funding is determined annually based upon several factors. Each Zone’s costs are determined based upon the landscape, lighting and amenities associated with the tract and costs associated with their maintenance. Costs are apportioned to the parcels within each Zone based on an equity-based formula. Each Zone is intended to be an independently funded project within the LLMD. Each Zone essentially receives that, and only that, which the property owners within the particular Zone fund.
The LLMD provides and ensures the continued maintenance, servicing, administration and operation of various landscaped and lighting improvements and associated appurtenances located within the public right-of-ways and dedicated landscape easements in various tracts annexed into the LLMD throughout the City. Each tract is identified within a distinct Zone with differing costs and benefits to the parcels within each Zone. The spreading of the improvement costs is based upon the total cost of the improvements within each Zone. Each property is assessed only for the cost of the improvements from which benefit is received.
The benefit formula used within each of the Zones in the LLMD may vary. The formula used for each Zone reflects the composition of the parcels, and the improvements and services provided, to fairly proportion the costs based on the special benefit to each parcel.
