  2. 2. MACDONALD PARK PHASE 2 CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLAN
  3. 3. PARK SITE WE ARE HERE
  4. 4. FUNDING <ul><li>PARK CONSTRUCTION </li></ul><ul><li>DEVELOPER/PARK IMPACT FEES </li></ul><ul><li>EASTERN ELK GROVE FINANCE PLAN </li></ul><ul><li>$470,000 CONSTRUCTION BUDGET </li></ul><ul><li>PARK MAINTENANCE </li></ul><ul><li>LANDSCAPE & LIGHTING ASSESSMENTS - $115/YEAR </li></ul><ul><li>MAINTENANCE OF 10 PARKS TOTALING 58 ACRES AND </li></ul><ul><li>17 ACRES OF LANDSCAPE CORRIDORS </li></ul>MACDONALD PARK PHASE 2 CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLAN
  5. 5. Why is it taking so long to build the rest of our park?!
  6. 6. THE GOOD NEWS <ul><li>The CSD has $470,000 of Park Impact Fees to build </li></ul><ul><li>MacDonald Park Phase 2 </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Park development funds cannot be used for maintenance costs. </li></ul><ul><li>It would be fiscally irresponsible of the CSD to proceed with the </li></ul><ul><li>construction of a park that they cannot afford to maintain. </li></ul>THE NOT-SO-GOOD NEWS <ul><li>The CSD does not yet own the park site. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape and Lighting (L&L) assessments pay for park </li></ul><ul><li>maintenance. Current L&L assessments are not enough to </li></ul><ul><li>maintain Park Site B – Sheldon Place. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Proposition 218 was passed by the voters of California in 1996. </li></ul><ul><li>In the last 11 years, maintenance costs have risen at a rate that </li></ul><ul><li>has exceeded the CPI, typically 2 – 4%, and the District cannot </li></ul><ul><li>assume the maintenance of new parkland with the current </li></ul><ul><li>available funding. </li></ul><ul><li>The proposition prohibits raising assessments at a rate that </li></ul><ul><li>exceeds the CPI (Consumer Price Index) without a balloted vote. </li></ul>HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? <ul><li>The assessment rate is 11 years old. Rates were determined prior </li></ul><ul><li>to build out of the benefit zone and before Sheldon Place was a </li></ul><ul><li>subdivision. There was no method for anticipating future parks. </li></ul>
  9. 9. WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS?
  10. 10. OPTION #1 The ‘do nothing’ option - do not build the park.
  11. 11. OPTION #2 <ul><li>The CSD is asking property owners in your area to vote on a new </li></ul><ul><li>park maintenance assessment. </li></ul><ul><li>Passing this measure would allow CSD design staff to proceed </li></ul><ul><li>with preparation of construction documents. </li></ul><ul><li>If passed, maintenance funding would be available for this park </li></ul><ul><li>and other parks in the area. </li></ul>
  12. 12. MACDONALD PARK PHASE 2 CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLAN <ul><li>The Elk Grove West </li></ul><ul><li>Vineyard Park Assessment </li></ul><ul><li>will be $96 annually or </li></ul><ul><li>about $8 per month. </li></ul><ul><li>51% of the returned ballots </li></ul><ul><li>must vote ‘yes’ on this </li></ul><ul><li>measure for passage. </li></ul><ul><li>Ballots will be arriving </li></ul><ul><li>May 1 and must be </li></ul><ul><li>returned by June 17 </li></ul><ul><li>If this measure fails, the construction of MacDonald Phase 2 – </li></ul><ul><li>will be postponed indefinitely. </li></ul>
