In 1963, the California Legislature responded
to the urban boundary wars, and the problem of public finance and service they created, by enacting
the Local Agency Formation Commissions (LAFCOs). This law established a commission in each county
responsible for overseeing most forms of local government boundary change, including incorporation, annexations,
and special district formations. In the interest of more orderly development, LAFCOs were to act a judges of boundary
disputes among governments and communities. Since 1963, numerous changes have been made to the law, culminating in the current
Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Act of 2000, operative January 1, 2001.
