each tract, lot or parcel of property within the district which is benefitted

by such project in proportion to the (insert method of allocating special

transportation authority which will assume ownership of the completed project,

delete from the project any portion which was to be funded by special

assessment and which is not otherwise required for project integrity.



5. A district may establish different classes or subclasses of real

property within the district for purposes of levying differing rates of

special assessments. The levy rate for special assessments may vary for each

class or subclass of real property based on the level of benefit derived by

each class or subclass from projects funded by the district.
