HOW DOES THE DISTRICT FUNCTION?

Rancho Sahuarita has proposed that, over fifteen years, the CFD Board may approve a list of improvements whose current costs are $38.6 million, with a limit of $60 million in general obligation bonds over a 35-year period. The bonds would be issued in smaller amounts, the first being approximately $2.6 million in the 4th quarter of 2014. This will cover the cost for the infrastructure of two residential roads, with sewer, drainage improvements, landscaping and the costs of the issuance of the bonds. The next bond issue would probably occur in 2018 or later.
