The City of Moorpark is considering the formation of a community facilities district (the "CFD") under the authority of the Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982, as amended, to fund certain public facilities related to new development within the City of Moorpark, and to incur bonded indebtedness of the CFD.

This Notice contains a brief summary of the proposal, but you are referred to the City Council's Resolution of Intention to Form a Community Facilities District and Levy a Special Tax (No. 2018-3662, adopted January 17, 2018) and its Resolution of Intention to Incur Bonded Indebtedness (No. 2018-3663, adopted January 17, 2018) for details of the proposal.

The proposal is to subject the property within the CFD to a special tax which will be used to finance costs of public infrastructure necessary or incidental to new development in the City, particularly as relates to the development of the real property within the City generally referred to as the subject of Residential Planned Development Permit 2016-01, to facilitate the acquisition and construction of public facilities authorized to be financed by the CFD. The special tax will also be used to pay principal and interest on bonds issued for the purposes of the CFD, and will expire when the bonds are retired and all eligible facilities are financed. Additional details on how the proceeds of the special taxes and the bonds will be used are set forth in the resolutions referred to in the preceding paragraph, which are incorporated by this reference herein. A map showing the land proposed to be included in the CFD is on file with the City Clerk.

The proposal also includes authority to issue up to $25,000,000 in bonds to be repaid by the special tax. Neither the City of Moorpark nor any person outside the CFD has any liability for the special tax or the bonds. The security for the bonds is limited to the property subject to the special tax within the CFD.

In order to confer the authority upon the City Council of the City of Moorpark to levy the special tax and to issue the bonds, a public hearing must be held on the proposal, then the City Council will decide whether to form the CFD, and finally the qualified electors within the CFD must approve the proposal by a two-thirds vote. Where the CFD is uninhabited (as is the case here) the qualified electors are, pursuant to law, the owners of property within the CFD.

This is the notice of the public hearing. The public hearing will be held during the City Council meeting on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at 6:30 p.m., at the City of Moorpark Civic Center Council Chambers located at 799 Moorpark Avenue, Moorpark, California 93021.

At the hearing, the testimony of all interested persons or potential special taxpayers for or against the formation of the CFD, the authorization to levy the special tax, and the authorization to issue the bonds will be heard. If written protests against the proposed CFD are delivered to the City Clerk at or before the time set for the

hearing by either registered voters residing within, or the owners of property within, the proposed CFD, they will be counted toward a possible majority protest. Such protests by a majority of the registered voters residing within the CFD or by the owners of a majority of the land area within the CFD which is or will be subject to the special tax, if not withdrawn prior to the close of the hearing so as to reduce the value of the protests to less than a majority, will require the proposed CFD to be eliminated from immediate consideration, and prevent its being included in a subsequent proceedings for at least one year.

If the Council, after the public hearing, determines that a majority protest under Section 53324 of the California Government Code was not made at the hearing, the Council may conduct an election by mailed or hand-delivered ballot to levy a special tax.

Questions should be directed to the undersigned, telephone (805) 517-6223.

/s/ Maureen Benson, City Clerk
