Background information about MADs:

A Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) is a legal mechanism by which property owners can vote to assess themselves to receive enhanced maintenance, landscaping, and lighting services. These services are above and beyond the City's baseline general services. Self-managed MADs differ from the City's Park & Recreation Department managed MADs in that district property owners select, by ballot, a nonprofit corporation to contract for the provision of enhanced goods and services. The San Diego Municipal Code allows non-profit corporations to administer MADs when property owners support the selection of a particular non-profit corporation for their district. It is the City's responsibility to oversee the corporation's administration of the MADs to ensure compliance with local and State statutes. More information is available at
