Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act; Proceedings to Create a Community Facilities District
The hearing may be continued from time to time, but shall be completed within 30 days, except that if the legislative body finds that the complexity of the proposed district or the need for public participation requires additional time, the hearing may be continued from time to time for a period not to exceed six months. The legislative body may modify the resolution of intention by eliminating proposed facilities or services, or by changing the rate or method of apportionment of the proposed special tax so as to reduce the maximum special tax for all or a portion of the owners of property within the proposed district, or by removing territory from the proposed district. Any modifications shall be made by action of the legislative body at the public hearing. If the legislative body proposes to modify the resolution of intention in a way that will increase the probable special tax to be paid by the owner of any lot or parcel, it shall direct that a report be prepared that includes a brief analysis of the impact of the proposed modifications on the probable special tax to be paid by the owners of lots or parcels in the district, and shall receive and consider the report before approving the modifications or any resolution of formation that includes those modifications. The legislative body shall not modify the resolution of intention to increase the maximum special tax or to add territory to the proposed district. At the conclusion of the hearing, the legislative body may abandon the proposed establishment of the community facilities district or may, after passing upon all protests, determine to proceed with establishing the district.
