How well have the LAFCO board and staff responded to the challenge of rationalizing the process of municipal incorporation? Has the devil of political influence been exorcised? Is there promise of dealing effectively with the problems of urban sprawl, unincorporated "islands", and inequality of urban finance? The first municipal incorporation under LAFCO was that of Carson; this was an illuminating case, which says much about the effectiveness of LAFCO in working towards its announced goals.
