In 1987, the Cypress Cove II Landscape Maintenance Assessment District was formed to fund the maintenance of all exterior landscaping elements along Abdy Way, Cardoza Avenue, and Beach Road as well as the landscaping surrounding the percolation lot. Any areas of groundcover, shrubs, trees, irrigation pipelines, controllers, valves, sprinklers, masonry retaining walls, and associated electrical services are considered landscaping elements and are maintained and serviced by this Assessment District.
The District is named after the 70+ Monterey Cypress (Cupressus macrocarpon) surrounding the Subdivision. Monterey Cypress is a species of cypress tree native to the Central Coast of California.Due to the size and age of the trees,the City conductsan annual tree maintenance program for the health and safety of the trees and the District.
Each year, the District is assessed a special tax through the County to fund the Assessment District’s landscape maintenance. The processes to set the assessment amount and levy the tax is through Marina City Council action. A public hearing (usually between April-May) is held for the residents of the District to voice their opinions on District maintenance or improvements they would like to see. All residents are notified by mail of the meeting time and place.
