Special (Assessment) Districts

The City of San José supports the formation of special districts to finance the construction and/or maintenance of public infrastructure improvements serving specific areas within the City when that work will contribute to the City's economic, social, or aesthetic enhancement. There are several types of districts in San José such as:
  • Community facilities district (CFD)
  • Local improvement district 
  • Integrated finance district
  • Benefit district
  • Maintenance district (MD)

The special districts group facilitates the formation and ongoing administration of these districts. The costs of providing the special benefits are paid in proportion to the benefit received through levies upon the benefiting properties.
