Welcome to the Fresno Local Agency
Commission (LAFCo) Website!
If you are a first time visitor, you might enjoy browsing
through our website. You will find answers to your questions of "What" is
a LAFCO, "Why" and "When" were we created, "What" do we do and "Who" do
we serve? All of these answers and more may be obtained through use of this
If you click onto the "Hearings and Workshops" tab, the Hearing
Calendar will come up. Click onto LAFCo Staff Reports to view all reports
presented at LAFCo meetings. Each report is made available on-line five
days prior to the public hearing. The public is invited to attend and participate
at our public meetings and workshops. If you miss a meeting, you can
still hear it the following day via the hearing audio.
that you may find interesting is our "Municipal Service Review" (MSR) and
"Sphere of Influence" (SOI) Program Page. State law requires LAFCOs throughout
the State of California to review the efficiency of public services provided
to residents. All of Fresno County's 118 Special Districts and 15 Cities
are required to have prepared MSR and SOI updates prior to January 1, 2008.
The recommendations of the MSRs dictate possible future changes to District
and City Spheres of Influence (SOI).
Our goal is to provide an excellent
level of service to the people of Fresno County. We believe that there are
various ways in which we can achieve this such as providing all of our application
forms on-line. We have also provided color and/or black and white reproducible
maps of all Cities and Special Districts. These maps provide up to date
City and District boundaries and SOIs. We have provided several LAFCo documents
that you will find interesting as well as "links" to other State, Regional
and Local Governmental websites.
We are available to discuss your
LAFCO-related proposals and issues. We believe that a more informed public
allows for better public dialogue and better decision making that benefit
all of us. Please feel free to contact our office by phone, fax, email,
or mail. We hope that your venture through our website will be an enjoyable
experience. Please feel free to share your ideas with us of how we can improve
our website to better serve you!
