Proposed Annexation Areas

the annexation process
The Annexation Process
  • Governed by the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) for Los Angeles County
  • Established by California State law (Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Act of 2000)
  • LAFCO is responsible for coordinating logical and timely changes in local governmental boundaries
the annexation process1
The Annexation Process
  • Annexations are Initiated by Petition or by Resolution:
    • Petition must be signed by 5% or more of registered voters within the area, or
    • Via a Resolution adopted by the City Council
  • The Calabasas City Council will consider a resolution of application to initiate annexation proceedings at their meeting of August 12, 2009
the annexation process2
The Annexation Process
  • LAFCO Activities
    • Receive Application and Determine Completeness
    • Negotiate a Revenue Agreement with LA County
    • Conduct 1st Hearing: Decide on Sphere of Influence Amendments and Annexation
    • Conduct 2nd Hearing: “Protest Hearing”
protest hearing outcomes
Protest Hearing Outcomes
  • Three possible outcomes from the Protest hearing:

1) If fewer than 25% of registered voters, or fewer than 25% of affected landowners (weighted by proportional share of overall assessed valuation) file written protests, then LAFCO orders the boundary change;

2) If at least 25% but not more than 50% of the registered voters or landowners protest, then LAFCO orders an election; and,

3) If more than 50% of the registered voters or landowners protest, LAFCO terminates the proceedings.
