The funding challenges in Benefit Zone 3 are not new. In 2009, property owners were given an opportunity to approve higher L&L benefit assessments to provide additional revenue for park and landscape maintenance. Residents did not approve the proposed benefit assessment increase at that time. In November 2017, Cosumnes CSD conducted a survey among Benefit Zone 3 property owners to gauge support for a benefit assessment increase. Because the survey results were well below the minimum threshold needed to approve a new overlay assessment district, Cosumnes CSD did not proceed with an official vote.
