The Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) was created by State law in 1963 to regulate the boundaries of cities and special districts. There is a LAFCO in each of the 58 counties of California. Each LAFCO is an independent public agency. The objectives of LAFCO are:

To encourage the orderly formation of local government agencies and promote the efficient provision of public services

To preserve agricultural land and open-space resources

To promote orderly growth and discourage urban sprawl

As a public agency, LAFCO discusses and acts upon its business monthly in open public meetings. We welcome your interest and participation in the important matters under study and consideration by LAFCO.
