All homes constructed within The Farm are subject to mill levy and taxes of the AVMD. The mill levy of the AVMD will not exceed a total of 40 mills (with a maximum of 30 mills for debt service and 10 mills for operations and maintenance) in any year; provided that if, on or after January 1, 2006, there are changes in the method of calculating assessed valuation or any constitutionally mandated tax credit, cut or abatement, the debt service mill levy may be increased or decreased to reflect such changes and otherwise as provided in the AVMD Service Plan.
