Storm Aftermath Update – Spring & Summer 2023

The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District suffered damage from the storm. We are continuing to work with the Park District’s insurance agency, engineers, and the other parties involved in getting these issues resolved and taken care of. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been a quick process. As a community agency, we understand the inconvenience this has caused for our constituents. Please be assured we are meeting all requirements to push forward the repairs needed.

·         Harich Ball field, Twin Peaks, CA  

The Twin Peaks Harich Ball field’s electrical panel was destroyed during the storm causing the sprinkler system and field lighting system to get damaged as well. The Park District is hand watering the field regularly. The fields netting was also destroyed, as poles broke under pressure causing the net to collapse. The proper insurance reports for these claims have been submitted and the Park District is following up on a regular basis to see when and how repairs will be implemented.  

·         The District Office, Rimforest, CA  

The District Office suffered beam damage in the roof area above the Activity Room/Gym and in an adjacent storage/office area occupied by Blue Jay Physical Therapy. The building is habitable and deemed safe, although for extra precaution those specific areas have been closed to the public. The proper insurance reports for these claims have been submitted and the Park District is following up on a regular basis to see when and how repairs will be implemented.    

 Districts Make the Difference 

What does that mean?  
Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is an independent special district sanctioned under California Law for the performance of local government functions. Special Districts range in size from very small to very large. The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is a smaller Independent special district that operates on a budget of $1.162 million (only 2/3 of which is provided by a $22 annual per-parcel property tax, the remainder needing to come from use fees) yet serves a vast area of 110 square miles. What’s so special? Focused services. Special Districts like the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District were formed to deliver specific public services within defined boundaries. 


Responsibility to Provide a Wide Variety of Services
Since the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is located in a resort area, our services are not limited to just locals and/or permanent residents or part-time residents, but to all who visit the mountain communities. Even those residents not located within our boundaries, but who own property in our mountain community can benefit from the use of our services. Unlike other Special Districts, our mandate and the services provided have resulted in a great range of opportunities for public recreation.


Benefits of Special Districts
According to the State Legislative Analyst, independent special districts have consistently shown the slowest rate of spending growth for local governments. We believe this is due to the high degree of accountability to the public and to the specific nature of the services provided by special districts. In the case of the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District, it’s due also to our fixed-rate tax source that does not adjust for inflation but must be supplemented by increasing efficiency and other measures. The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is considered an independent special district because we are directly accountable to our constituents, not another layer of local government and have an elected board that sets policy.
 

Districts Make the Difference
California special districts are much more than local service providers. These local agencies enable their constituents to have local control and are passionate about providing high-quality services and resources in the most efficient and effective manner. Find out more about the impact special districts are having and how they benefit the millions of Californians who use their services.
