DEVELOPMENT FEE FINANCING CFD NO. 95-01

This district was formed by City Council and approved by a special election of the property owners on April 6, 1995. This district, at formation, included five parcels of commercial/industrial property representing a total land area of 54 acres. Future development projects may join the program by submitting an application form and formally annexing to the CFD. So far there have been 3 annexations to the district.

The City Council recognized the need to stimulate economic development within the City of Sacramento. As a result, the City Council has adopted and established the Development Fee Financing (DFF) Program for commercial and industrial projects on December 6, 1994.

To participate in the DFF program, a development property must be formally annexed to this CFD. At the time of building permit issuance the landowner prepays the fees or (in the case of City fees) provides a letter of credit to the City as security. The City then issues Mello-Roos bonds. The bond proceeds are used to pay the fees or to reimburse landowners who have prepaid. The bond debt is repaid by the landowner over a period of time not to exceed 10 years from the date of bond issuance.

Series A and B bonds were issued in December 1995 in the amount of $2.5 million and $4.045 million, respectively.

Refunding Series B bonds were issued in January 2005 in the amount of $1.055 million to fully refund the Series B Bonds.

Series C bonds were issued in January 2005 in the amount of $5.3 million. Only the Series C bonds remain outstanding.
