Los Angeles County Special Districts

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors 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 Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972 (Act). As the governing body, the Board of Supervisors (Board) is responsible for levying the annual assessment for landscape and park maintenance purposes.

The County of Los Angeles (County) Special Districts Section, annually levies and collects special assessments in order to maintain landscape improvements within unincorporated and incorporated County areas. These improvements are located within three (3) Districts established pursuant to the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972, Part 2 of Division 15 of the California Streets and Highways Code (the 1972 Act).

The County may initiate proceedings for changes to the Districts and Zones for the continued maintenance and servicing of landscaping improvements by passing a Resolution. The initial resolution generally describes the territory within the Districts and Zones and any substantial changes in the Districts or Zones and orders an engineer to prepare and file a detailed report.
