Adopt a Resolution entitled: A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, ACTING IN ITS CAPACITY AS THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CHINO HILLS LANDSCAPE AND LIGHTING DISTRICT NO. 1, TO CONFIRM THE ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS AND ORDER THE LEVY AND COLLECTION OF ASSESSMENTS FOR THE CHINO HILLS LANDSCAPE AND LIGHTING DISTRICT NO. 1, PURSUANT TO PROVISIONS OF THE LANDSCAPING AND LIGHTING ACT OF 1972 (STREETS AND HIGHWAYS CODE, SECTION 22500 ET SEQ.).
The Chino Hills Landscape and Lighting Districts Nos. 1 and 2 were formed to provide street lighting, park, open space, landscaping maintenance, and improvements throughout the Districts. On July 28, 1992, the City Council accepted the consolidation of the two districts into a single District.
Annually, the City Council must hold a public hearing to review the cost of operation for landscape and lighting as presented in the Engineer’s Annual Levy Report and to set the annual assessments on properties within the District. On February 11, 2020, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 2020R-007 ordering the Engineer’s Annual Levy Report for FY 2020/21. On May 27, 2020, the City Council set June 23, 2020 as the date for the public hearing.
There has been no change in the annual assessments on those properties remaining in the Landscape and Lighting District. The Engineer’s Annual Levy Report for FY 2020/21, with proposed assessments has been on file with the City Clerk’s office since May 27, 2020. A map depicting the District Zones can be viewed on the City's Website at www.chinohills.org/LandLDistrictsMap and is also available at the Office of the City Clerk.
