Community Facilities District No. 14 was established pursuant to the Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982. Qualified electors authorized the district in 2006, along with the issuance of up to $75,000,000.00 in bonded indebtedness. Bonds were issued to pay for certain public facilities and/or services that benefit the district. A special tax is levied on properties in the district to pay the interest and principal on the bonds as well as administrative expenses.

Proceeds from the sale of Bonds and the special taxes collected will be used to finance the acquisition of School Facilities and related infrastructure required by the School District as a result of development of the property within the Community Facilities District, including classrooms, multi-purpose, administration and auxiliary space at each school, central support and administrative facilities, interim housing, transportation and special education facilities, together with furniture, equipment and technology with a useful life of at least five years and related administrative expenses and the acquisition of land for the construction of School Facilities or land or interests in land required to be provided as mitigation of environmental impacts associated with the development of School Facilities.



Each parcel is assigned a maximum special tax, which is typically based on development status, property use, and/or size of improvements. The actual annual special tax is based on the interest and principal due on the bonds for the current fiscal year, services costs, if any, and administrative expenses. However, the actual annual special tax cannot exceed the applicable maximum special tax.
