Voters here will decide in November whether to tax themselves to pay for the repair and maintenance of the Rossmoor perimeter wall. Directors of the Rossmoor Community Services District voted 4 to 1 last week to place a proposal on the Nov. 8 ballot to impose a special tax of $15 a year for the next 16 years. It would be assessed on local homeowners for the repair and upkeep of the wall, which was damaged during an earthquake two years ago.

Officials of the Rossmoor Community Services District said Wednesday that efforts to preserve the Rossmoor perimeter wall now depend on private citizens, since voters rejected a proposed special tax to pay for the wall's upkeep. "As far as we're concerned, it's a dead issue," said Bill Sheldon, the district's general manager. Final unofficial returns from Tuesday's election indicated that the tax initiative, Measure L, failed to muster the required two-thirds majority, garnering 64.

Directors of the Rossmoor Community Services District have moved closer to putting the issue of the Rossmoor perimeter wall on the November ballot. By a 4-1 vote last week, directors approved the text of two ballot measures that would be presented to the voters on the wall.

Voters will decide in a June election whether they are willing to tax themselves to pay for the cost of repairing and maintaining the Rossmoor perimeter wall. The Rossmoor Community Services District decided Wednesday to put the wall issue on the ballot after a survey by the Rossmoor Homeowners Assn. indicated that residents want the 37-year-old wall preserved because of its historical value.

The Rossmoor perimeter wall, long a political orphan, may finally have found someone to adopt it. The question of who owns the 1 1/2-mile-long wall, built 37 years ago, has been a puzzle to most residents of this 3,500-home community as public agencies--the county, the cities of Seal Beach and Los Alamitos and the Rossmoor Community Service District--have refused responsibility. But after a 100-foot section collapsed during an earthquake last year, the wall became a safety issue.

In an advisory vote this week, homeowners supported a proposal to add an estimated $109 a year to their property taxes to pay for a new park. Based on the results, the Rossmoor Community Services District board of directors will probably proceed with the purchase of the vacant 8 1/2-acre Rush Elementary School site at 3021 Blume Drive from the Los Alamitos Unified School District, board President Gustave Brickman said Wednesday. According to the American Arbitration Assn.

Directors of the the Rossmoor Community Services District board will decide today when to hold a special election to determine if voters are willing to tax themselves to maintain the Rossmoor perimeter wall. Two dates being proposed are June 7 and Nov. 8.

A public hearing will be held today on whether to place a proposal on the November ballot asking homeowners if they are willing to pay a special tax for the repair and maintenance of the Rossmoor perimeter wall. A 100-foot section of the red brick wall was damaged during an earthquake in 1992 and has not been repaired because public agencies, including the county, have refused to pay for the costs, estimated at more than $70,000.
