Service Reviews


Through adoption of AB 2838, the State of California established the requirements for LAFCOs to conducting Service Reviews (Government Code Section 56430) as well as requiring sphere of influence updates for all agencies under LAFCO purview (Government Code Section 56425).

In accordance with requirements outlined in Government Code Section 56430, the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) issued Municipal Service Review Guidelines that provide a step-by-step approach to understanding the service review process as set forth in the laws of the State of California. On May 21, 2003, the San Bernardino LAFCO adopted the OPR MSR Guidelines by reference for its use during the conduct of its service reviews and adopted local policies related to the processing of service reviews and review requirements for sphere of influence amendments.

The following are the Regional Service Reviews and Sphere of influence updates for San Bernardino County:
