A Maintenance Assessment District is legal mechanism by which property owners can vote to assess themselves to pay and receive services above-and-beyond what the City of San Diego normally provides. This above-and-beyond service level is called a “special benefit.” What the City normally provides is called the “general benefit.”
Maintenance Assessment Districts may also be known as Landscape Maintenance Districts, Lighting and Landscape Maintenance Districts, Enhanced Maintenance Assessment Districts, or Community Benefit Districts. Because many districts include more than landscaping and lighting, the name was changed to better represent the nature of the districts.
