owners in the proposed district who will pay more than 50 percent of the assessments
proposed to be levied, the city council may initiate proceedings to form a district
by the adoption of a resolution expressing its intention to form a district. The amount of assessment attributable to property or a business owned by the same
property or business owner that is in excess of 40 percent of the amount of all assessments
proposed to be levied, shall not be included in determining whether the petition is
signed by property or business owners who will pay more than 50 percent of the total
amount of assessments proposed to be levied.

include a summary of the management district plan. That summary shall include all of the following:

will be levied on property or businesses within the district, a statement as to whether
bonds will be issued, and a description of the exterior boundaries of the proposed
district, which may be made by reference to any plan or map that is on file with the clerk. The descriptions and statements do not need to be detailed and shall be sufficient
if they enable an owner to generally identify the nature and extent of the improvements, maintenance, and activities, and the location and extent of the proposed district.
(2) A time and place for a public hearing on the establishment of the property and
business improvement district and the levy of assessments, which shall be consistent
