Benefit Zone - District Wide
Benefit Zone Information
The District Wide Benefit Zone benefits the District as a whole, in addition to Bartholomew Sports Park, Camden Creek Greenbelt, Elk Grove Park and Rau Park. These four parks total 207 acres and are packed with many high-use assets that are used by the public on a continual basis.
Expenses for parks in the District Wide Benefit Zone are shared by all Cosumnes CSD residents, rather than being placed solely on the Benefit Zone where the park is geographically located. Each of the other Benefit Zones (not including the overlay zones) carry the burden of these parks proportionally based on acreage.
