(Use in conjunction with LAFCO Schedule of Fees and Charges)
1. LAFCO Fee (Dependent on Proposal Type/Acreage)  $__________
  Annexation, detachment, reorganization and sphere of influence fees are assessed for each area within a proposal based upon acreage. A single area means any separate geographical area requiring a legal description. A “single area” does not include two areas that are contiguous only at a point, or two or more areas that are contiguous to an existing boundary of a city or district, but not to each other.

(Example for City: Annexation of 18 acres on the east side of a City and 161 acres on the west side to be annexed in one proposal – calculation – 1 x $5,500 (under 20 acres) plus 1 x $9,000 (over 150 acres) = $14,500 fee)
