Street Light Outages - What Are the Possible Solutions?

Many California cities are facing budget constraints that limit the ability to pay outright for desperately needed infrastructure upgrades. Like school districts funding replacement or expansion of schools, a special tax assessment is used to fund capital needs and infrastructure. In these instances, cities turn to assessment districts to help finance projects that would otherwise go unfunded.

Below you will find examples of cities that established assessment districts to pay for vital citizen needs.

  • Stockton created an assessment district to fund the maintenance costs of storm drain basins throughout the city.
  • In San Diego, residents voted to form assessment districts to fund parks and landscaping upkeep.
  • Similar to Daly City's needs, Rancho Cucamonga formed eight assessment districts to fund street light and traffic signal costs.
