HISTORY OF LAFCOs

California has experienced a tremendous increase in population since the end of World War II. The result was a sporadic formation of cities and special service districts. The results of this development boom became evident as more of California's agricultural land was converted to urban uses. Premature and unplanned development created an inefficient, expensive system of delivering public services using various small local governments.

Governor Edmund G. Brown, Sr., responded to this problem in 1959 by appointing the Commission on Metropolitan Area Problems. The Commission's charge was to study and make recommendations on the "misuse of land resources" and the growing complexity of overlapping, local governmental jurisdictions. The Commission's recommendation on local government reorganization were introduced in the Legislature in 1963, resulting in the creation of the Local Agency Formation Commission, or LAFCOs, operating in each county except San Francisco.
