During the City Council Meeting on March 3, 2020 a Public Hearing was conducted upon the proposed increase in assessments for Zone L-2G, and in consideration of all objections and protests, whether written or oral, if any. The Public Hearing was paused at approximately 7:00 p.m. in order to direct staff to tabulate the Proposition 218 Ballots. The agenda item was reconvened at the end of the meeting once the votes were tabulated.


  • The result of the vote was a Majority Protest with 74.3% voting No, and 25.7% voting Yes.


With this No vote staff will be coming back to City Council in the coming months to initiate and implement the reduction in the landscaping maintenance services and the vacation of easements, thus returning the maintenance to the underlying property owner.
