The special study of the Eden Township Healthcare District was accepted by LAFCo on April 11, 2017. To view the final report, click here (PDF).

LAFCo is a state mandated local agency that oversees boundary changes to cities and special districts, the formation of new agencies including incorporation of new cities, and the consolidation of existing agencies.

The broad goals of the agency are to ensure the orderly formation of local government agencies, to preserve agricultural and open space lands, and to discourage urban sprawl.

Alameda LAFCo works with integrity to protect the quality of life for the citizens of Alameda County by:

  1. Ensuring that government agencies provide efficient municipal services;
  2. Balancing infrastructure needs for sustainable growth; and
  3. Conserving the environment and limited resources including prime agricultural and open space lands.
