Public Notice - Annexation of County Islands

The City of Hanford is proposing to initiate the annexation of county-islands, in accordance with the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 (CKH Act) and the State of California’s Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) guidelines.

There are eight County islands within the bounds of the City of Hanford city limits. The City and County have agreed that it is in both parties’ best interest to annex these islands to reduce inefficiencies and deficiencies of services provided.

Prior to initiation of the annexation of the County islands, the City of Hanford wishes to inform property owners within the County islands of the effect of annexation into the City limits. This letter linked below provides answers to some of the most frequently asked questions associated with annexation.

Should you have any questions not addressed by this letter, or wish to discuss further, please contact the staff-member associated with the topic you wish to discuss.

Any remaining questions will be addressed during an open-forum community meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. in the Civic Auditorium, 400 N. Douty Street, Hanford, CA 93230.
