Assessment Voting Ballot
Village Homeowner’s Association
Road Repair Project
Village has been selected by Canton Township to be one of the subdivision road
repair projects for 2020. These projects
use tax revenues from the road millage that passed last summer but also
requires a percentage match by the subdivision.
Our road project would be a $200,000 project, which is the max allowed
for 2020. Our required percentage match
is 20% of that, which is $40,000. We
have 290 homes in our neighborhood, so the obligation per home would be $137.93 … We need to vote on and pass a
Special Assessment to collect these monies.
The purpose of this ballot is for each
home to submit their vote on whether they want to approve a special assessment
of $137.93 per household to be collected by July 15, 2019 (THIS YEAR) for a
road repair project that would take place in our subdivision in 2020 (NEXT
YEAR). If this assessment passes we will
use it to pay Canton Township our $40,000 match for the 2020 road project and
the Township in turn will provide an additional $160,000 for that project in
2020 (for a total of $200,000). If the
assessment is voted down we get no money from the Township and no road project. Again: The
road project will take place in 2020 but the Township has to have our match
money by July of THIS YEAR.
of road considered for repair are based on Pavement Surface Evaluation Ratings
(PASER). You can review our ratings at
www.canton-mi.org under Services, Roads,
right side Quick Links, Canton’s PASER Ratings (PDF). For reference purposes the following sections
are high on the list but actual repairs would be finalized later:
- Barchester is worst at a PASER 4 rating,
including a section of road at 6847 Brookshire
- a 30 to 40 yard section of Greenwood off
- a 40 yard section of Pickwick at Trotwood Ct
- dip in road at 6823 Brookshire
If approved you will receive a special
assessment notice for $137.93 that will be due by July 15,2019 THIS
This is one assessment of $137.93 this
year (2019) for one $200,000 road project next year (2020).
meeting to discuss this will be held: at the pavilion in our North Park on Tuesday
