A Landscape Maintenance District is a special district formed to provide benefitting property owners the opportunity to pay for enhanced landscaping and appurtenant improvements, maintenance, and services beyond those generally provided by the County.

History

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors (Board) approved the formation of the Landscaping and Lighting Act (LLA) District Nos. 1, 2, and 4 and Zones therein for the purpose of providing landscaping in County administered LLA Districts and Zones pursuant to provisions of the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972, Part 2 of Division 15 of the California Street and Highways Code (1972 Act). As the governing body, the Board is responsible for levying the annual assessment for landscape improvement and maintenance purposes in the LLA Districts, and Zones therein.

The County of Los Angeles (County) Department of Public Works (Public Works) annually levies and collects special assessments in order to maintain landscape improvements in the LLA Districts, and Zones therein, within unincorporated County areas. These improvements are located within three (3) Districts established pursuant to the 1972 Act.

LLA District No. 1

On July 12, 1979, the Board approved the formation of County Valencia Area-Wide LLA District No. 1 to provide for the maintenance and servicing of landscape improvements located in the medians throughout the District. On November 18, 1997, a joint resolution with the City of Santa Clarita was adopted for the transfer of jurisdiction (responsibility) for portions of this District. Public Works currently administers the remaining portions of LLA District No. 1 that was not transferred to the City of Santa Clarita, and is responsible for contracted landscape maintenance services for medians along Stevenson Ranch Parkway and Pico Canyon Road.

LLA District No. 1 includes the following three (3) assessment Zone designations:

Since 1995, 9 Zones have either been detached or transferred due to community petition or city annexation.
