The East Bay Regional Park District established the Walpert Ridge Zone of benefit (ZB-3) on July 7, 1998 to provide for servicing of regional parkland, habitat maintenance, irrigation, trails, fencing, gates, signs, and associated appurtenant facilities for these 152 parcels, 136 of which are assessable, in the ridge land above the City of Hayward, Alameda County. In 2006, an annexation of the Stonebrae development was completed, adding 570 additional parcels. There are currently 376 assessable parcels in Zone of Benefit No. 3, though further subdivision of parcels in the zone will result in 706 assessable parcels. (Note: Election materials were unavailable. The assessment provides funding for a general benefit.)
An annual assessment of $134.61 per equivalent dwelling unit is established within the Walpert Ridge Zone of Benefit for fiscal year 2014-15.The assessment rates within the district’s six zones of benefit increase annually by the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for the San Francisco area.
