Session Title

Successful District Reorganization: A Whole that is Greater than the Sum of its Parts


Thursday, April 25 from 1:45pm – 3:15pm / Olympic Ballroom


Using a successful regional district reorganization in rural Plumas County as a case study, we will explore the process of reorganizing a district that included a City, community services district, and fire protection districts, to form a functional district with a sustainable funding source. The discussion panel will include insights from Plumas County LAFCO Executive Officer on the preparation of the resolution, coordination with the County, and negotiations for property tax exchange; consultants involved in the feasibility study and community outreach; and a representative from the district and Local Emergency Services Study Group to share perspectives on the challenges and decision-making process. We will use the district reorganization timeline to guide the discussion and engage with the audience on each step of the process.
