On May 1st, 2017, the La Habra City Council considered filing an application with the Orange County Local Area Formation Commission regarding the proposed annexation of the County Islands.  At that time, the City Council directed staff to provide additional information on the City’s website about the annexation and what potential impacts it may have for island residents.  The link below contains answers to several Frequently Asked Questions from island residents as staff reports on the annexation.

The La Habra City Council will once again consider annexation on November 6, 2017.
