Please be advised that given our small number of staff, the LAFCo office may be periodically closed during normal business hours. We recommend that you call the office before visiting.


In keeping with the Public Health Order, we have implemented health and safety measures to ensure social distancing, including staggered work schedules for staff. For the safety of you and LAFCo staff, we encourage you to contact us via phone or email in lieu of visiting the office in person. If you must visit the LAFCo office, please wear a facemask.


If a meeting with LAFCo staff for anything other than routine matters is needed, appointments are required. Please contact us to schedule an appointment so that we may work with you in advance to prepare for the meeting. Please note: Facemasks will be required for in-person meetings.

The Ventura Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) was formed and operates under the provisions of state law, specifically what is now known as the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000. (California Government Code Section 56000 et seq.). State law provides for LAFCos to be formed as independent agencies in each county in California. LAFCos implement state law requirements and state and local policies relating to boundary changes for cities and most special districts, including spheres of influence, incorporations, annexations, reorganizations and other changes of organization. In this capacity the Ventura LAFCo is the boundary agency for cities and most special districts in Ventura County.
