Residents encouraged to apply for LAFCO alternate role


Community members are encouraged to apply by Jan. 31 to become an alternate member of the Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), a part-time paid role.

LAFCO is an independent, state-created commission tasked with “encouraging orderly growth, discouraging urban sprawl and preserving agricultural and open space lands,” according to the agency. The commission is composed of seven voting members and four alternates who are appointed to four-year terms and must be Contra Costa County residents.

Commissioners typically meet on the second Wednesday each month at 1:30 p.m., although additional meetings may be scheduled. Commissioners are paid a $150 stipend per meeting.
