Heritage Residents attend CSD meeting to protest Park Fees
As reported by Sel Richard in the Mountain Democrat
Heritage Village senior community residents hit with park fees attended a recent El Dorado Hills Community Service District Board of Directors meeting to voice concerns over the $362 annual fee they are asked to pay for what is being promoted as a public park in their 55+ community.
Among the contested issues is that Heritage Village is the only development saddled with the Landscape and Lighting Assessment District fee even though Four Seasons as well as several commercial properties are in proximity. Heritage Village resident Bob Williams said the CSD made an agreement with the developer without homeowner input and claimed Four Seasons has been deemed exempt from payments due to a double 50% discount for its age-restricted status and the fact that only one side of the development touches the park.
