In 1989, the Monterey Bay Estates Lighting and Landscape Maintenance Assessment District was formed to fund the maintenance of all exterior landscape areas along Crescent Avenue and surrounding the percolation lot at the corner of Costa Del Mar Rd. and De Forest Rd. Landscaping elements consist of groundcover, trees, irrigation pipelines, controllers with associated electrical service, valves, hydroseed areas, sprinklers, water, and 41 street lights. These landscape elements are maintenance and serviced by this Assessment District. The Traffic Circles on Crescent Avenue are not a part of the District.
Each year, the District is assessed a special tax through the County to fund the Assessment District’s landscape maintenance. The processes to set the assessment amount and levy the tax is through Marina City Council action. A public hearing (usually between April-May) is held for the residents of the District to voice their opinions on District maintenance or improvements they would like to see. All residents are notified by mail of the meeting time and place.
