Why wasn't I notified?

In a new subdivision, the developer knows what petitions were required before construction could begin, and has an estimated monthly cost of the specials associated with those projects. The developer should have shared that amount when you purchased the lot.

When the City receives a petition from an established neighborhood, a certified letter is sent to each property owner in the improvement district. If you purchased your house after the project was approved by the City Council, your realtor or the previous owner should have let you know that there were pending specials on the property.
