The Community Facilities District Act (more commonly known as Mello-Roos) was a law enacted by the California State Legislature in 1982. The Act enabled "Community Facilities Districts" (CFDs) to be established by public agencies as a means of obtaining funding for the construction of public improvements. A Mello-Roos District is an area where a special property tax on real estate, in addition to the normal property tax, is imposed on those real property owners within a Community Facilities District. These districts seek public financing through the sale of bonds for the purpose of financing public improvements and services. These services may include streets, water, sewage and drainage, electricity, infrastructure, schools, parks and police protection to newly developing areas. The tax paid is used to make the payments of principal and interest on the bonds. To view a map of the various CFDs in Eastvale, please visit: www.JCSD.us
