After conducting public hearings, Solana Beach City Council approved resolutions accepting engineer reports and establishing annual levies for the Solana Beach Coastal Rail Trail Maintenance District, which was formed in 2006 to support the operations, maintenance and landscaping of the trail. The Solana Beach Lighting District was formed in 1987 to support the installation, operation and maintenance of street lighting facilities within the city.
Depending on how close to the trail residents live, and in what type of dwelling, Solana Beach Coastal Rail Trail Maintenance District rates range from $2.44 to $19.50, though some are exempt. Benefit fees for residents in the Solana Beach Coastal Rail Trail Maintenance District are $8.80/single family, except for those living in the designated “dark sky” area, in which case they pay $1.62/single family unit per year.
The amounts to be assesses for the districts in FY 2011/2010 will not increase from FY 2010/2011.
22nd District Agricultural Association
The council discussed Gov. Brown’s recent removal of three members of the 22nd District Agricultural Association (22nd DAA), all of whom were serving expired terms. Though it is not known who will be appointed to this vacancy, residents from Solana Beach and Del Mar are being considered, though no names have been publicly announced.
