 What's LAFCo?

Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) is a countywide commission, required in each California county.

Our Goals

  • Ensure the orderly formation of local governmental agencies
  • Preserve agricultural and open space lands
  • Discourage sprawl

We Govern:

  • Boundary changes (annexations) of cities and special districts
  • Formation of new agencies
  • Incorporation of new cities and districts
  • Consolidation or reorganization of special districts and or cities
  • Municipal Service Reviews

Sacramento LAFCo joins with every LAFCo across the state in accepting greater responsibility for local government service delivery.
