County Service Area 70 Zone R-5 formed in 1980 and is governed by the County Board of Supervisors. The zone has no direct employees, it operates with personnel and supplies provided by County Service Area 70. On May 1, 2007 voters approved a special tax of $60 per parcel, per year with a 2.5% inflationary factor to maintain 23 miles of paved and unpaved roads in the Sugarloaf area of Bear Valley. The special tax was $71.34 for 2014-15, is $74.95 for 2016-17, on 3,554 parcels to fund road maintenance and snow removal services. The zone does not receive general levy property tax revenue, therefore assessed value data is not compiled by the County. The audits identify the receipt of property taxes even though the zone receives a special tax.
