Supervisors approve cemetery district property tax exchange

In the near future, Riverside County’s Local Agency Formation Commission will hold a hearing on transferring land between the Elsinore Valley Cemetery District, the Perris Valley Cemetery District and the Wildomar Cemetery District. The Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved a property tax exchange, June 12, so that property tax revenue for the cemetery districts will also be transferred.

The supervisors’ 5-0 vote approved the transfer in which 100 percent of property tax payments which become cemetery district revenue will be sent to the successor district. The property tax transfer is contingent upon LAFCO approving the cemetery district reorganization and would take effect for the fiscal year, beginning July 1, following the completion of the reorganization.

The proposed reorganization is intended to align the cemetery district boundaries with city and community spheres of influences. The changes would transfer North Peak, Canyon Hills and Canyon Lake areas from the Perris Valley Cemetery District to the Elsinore Valley Cemetery District, move Quail Valley parcels from the Elsinore Valley Cemetery District to the Perris Valley Cemetery District, change Cottonwood Canyon land from the Perris Valley Cemetery District to the Wildomar Cemetery District, detach Sedco Hills territory from the Elsinore Valley Cemetery District and annex it into the Wildomar Cemetery District, bring Lakeland Village land currently in the Wildomar Cemetery District into the Elsinore Valley Cemetery District and annex property just north of the current Perris Valley Cemetery District boundary into that district.

A May 30 meeting with representatives of the cemetery districts included the unanimous approval of the property tax exchange.
