Talmadge Maintenance Assessment District (TMAD)

In a Maintenance Assessment District (MAD), property owners within the district pay for and receive a “special benefit” of services above-and-beyond what the City provides. The citizen advisory committee working with the City for the Talmadge Maintenance Assessment District (TMAD) is an elected Board of Directors and subcommittee volunteers from within the Talmadge Maintenance Assessment District and operating under the TMAD By-Laws.

If you are the owner of property located within the district boundary, then a TMAD assessment appears on your parcel’s property tax bill. Since 1999, TMAD’s efforts have been funded by the tax assessments as well as city and county grants. The money collected in the district is required to be spent in Talmadge under the guidelines of a Master Plan developed with input from the community. The plan includes: improvements to the entrances of the community with landscaping, trees, and restoration of the historic gates, the creation of a centerpiece for the neighborhood with landscaping at the traffic circle at 49th and Adams Avenue; the addition of street trees and most recently, the restoration, replacement and installation of historically relevant street lighting throughout the community.
