Madera LAFCO has jurisdiction over changes in local government organization occurring within Madera County, such as annexations and incorporations of cities and special districts. LAFCOs are created by state law and encourage the orderly formation of local government agencies, to preserve agricultural and open space land, and to discourage urban sprawl.
