About Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO)
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 as 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.
While their responsibilities have expanded over the years, LAFCOs generally have the following makeup*:
Two City Members (selected by the cities in that county)
Two County Members (selected by the Board of Supervisors)
Two Special District Members (elected by independent special districts in that county)
One Public Member (selected by the other six LAFCO Commissioners)
Alternate members—one in each category—are also appointed and vote whenever a regular member is absent or disqualified from participating. All member...s serve four-year terms.

Regular meetings are at 1:30 PM, generally on the second Wednesday of each month, in the Board of Supervisors Chambers in Martinez.
