What are potential solutions to closing this funding gap and restoring service levels?

One solution would be for a weighted majority of property owners in Benefit Zone 3 to support increasing their L&L assessments to close the gaps between expenditures and assessment revenues. Increased assessment funding would be used to restore the cutbacks in service levels and put these benefit zones on a more sustainable financial path to maintain existing and new parks. The other solution would be to create “overlay assessments” for smaller areas within Benefit Zone 3 focused around specific parks. These assessments would only benefit these parks.
