POCKET ROAD FBA DISTRICT

The Pocket Road FBA district was formed in August of 1993 to reimburse the City for the widening and construction of curb, gutter, and sidewalk improvements on Pocket Road. In 1993, when this project was implemented, there were only four residential undeveloped lots needing street improvements for the completion of Pocket Road. If and when these properties develop, they will be required to pay a fee for their share of those improvements.

Fees range from $8,000 to $138,400 for the four properties and will be paid at the time of Building permit or Final Subdivision Map.
