22571.
  

The lines and dimensions of each lot or parcel of land shown on the diagram shall conform to those shown on the county assessor’s maps for the fiscal year to which the report applies. The diagram may refer to the county assessor’s maps for a detailed description of the lines and dimensions of any lots or parcels, in which case, those maps shall govern for all details concerning the lines and dimensions of such lots or parcels.

(c) Assess the net amount upon all assessable lots or parcels of land within the district by apportioning that amount among the several lots or parcels in proportion to the estimated benefits to be received by each lot or parcel from the improvements.

The assessment may refer to the county assessment roll for a description of the lots or parcels, in which case that roll shall govern for all details concerning the description of the lots or parcels.

(Amended by Stats. 1987, Ch. 1184, Sec. 28.)

22573.
  

The net amount to be asessed upon lands within an assessment district may be apportioned by any formula or method which fairly distributes the net amount among all assessable lots or parcels in proportion to the estimated benefits to be received by each such lot or parcel from the improvements.

The determination of whether or not a lot or parcel will benefit from the improvements shall be made pursuant to the Improvement Act of 1911 (Division 7 (commencing with Section 5000)).

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 630.)

22574.
  

The diagram and assessment may classify various areas within an assessment district into different zones where, by reason of variations in the nature, location, and extent of the improvements, the various areas will receive differing degrees of benefit from the improvements.
