Should East LA Be a City?

Hosted by

The last area in Los Angeles County to incorporate was Calabasas, in 1991, bringing the total to 88. Today, the Local Agency Formation Commission met to consider East LA's latest application to become number 89. In 1960, LAFCO said, "No." In 1971, it said, "Yes," but voters turned down the idea. The current bid started in 2007. Today it split the difference and postponed a decision until February, 8.
