Landscape and Lighting Assessment Districts
About the Districts:
The City of Hayward has eighteen Landscape and Lighting District Benefit District Zones. The zones were formed using the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972 (Streets and Highways Code §22500), which is a flexible tool used by local government agencies to form Landscaping and Lighting Districts to finance the cost and expense of operating, maintaining, and servicing landscaping (including parks), and lighting improvements in public areas. All services in these areas are directly funded through individual homeowner property tax assessments.
