Proposition: Broadmoor Crime Prevention and Improvement District Proposition
Shall Broadmoor Crime Prevention and Improvement District (“District”), be authorized to renew the annual parcel fee of $100 on each improved and unimproved parcel within the District, beginning in 2023 and ending in 2032, and shall the District’s Board be authorized to increase the annual parcel fee as provided in La. R.S. 33:9097.8, to an amount not to exceed $150, with the proceeds of the parcel fee to be used to aid in crime prevention and to add to the security of District residents by providing for an increase in the presence of law enforcement personnel in the District, and to serve the needs of the District’s residents by funding beautification and improvements for the overall betterment of the District ($195,000 is reasonably expected to be collected from the initial collection)?
A Crime Prevention and Improvement District is a form of special tax district that collects taxes for a defined area to be used for a specific purpose. This proposition is only on your ballot if you live in the defined area of the district. The Broadmoor District specifically charges a $100 service charge per year for all properties in the district and allows the District Board to increase the fee gradually to a maximum of $250 per year.
Renews the Broadmoor Crime Prevention and Improvement District for another 10 years, 2023-2032. This will collect $100 per year for each residential or commercial building. An estimated $195,000 will be collected by this charge per year from the entire district. These funds will be spent on extra law enforcement patrols and beautification projects.
The Broadmoor District is not renewed. Funding from this tax’s service charge is no longer available for the area’s extra law enforcement patrols and beautification projects
