It All Starts With State Legislation 150 150 RPOSD

 

In 1991, California Legislators passed the Regional Park, Park and Open-Space, and Open-Space Districts Legislation (Public Resources Code, Section 5506.9) to promote and protect parks and open space throughout the state by delegating the responsibility to their respective regional districts.

In Los Angeles County, the Board of Supervisors were appointed to act, ex officio, as the governing body of the regional district to determine the resolution and details of creating a governing body to administer the regional district. These responsibilities include: determining the name, territory, financing methods, budgeting responsibilities, and calling an election to create and establish the proposed regional district.
