Since 1974, the Ventura County Special Districts Association (VCSDA) has been representing over 20 independently governed special districts located in Ventura County. Special districts are single purposed entities formed by local residents to provide local services. Because special districts are a more efficient form of government, they are quicker to respond to customer needs.
VCSDA's purpose is to promote the efficient, economical and responsive public services offered by the independent special districts of Ventura County–independent special districts governed by a locally elected board of directors.
INDEPENDENT SPECIAL DISTRICTS WORKING HARD FOR YOU
Independent Special Districts respond quickly to needs of local residents through direct accessibility rather than through several layers of bureaucracy inherent with other forms of government.
Independent Special Districts have been providing quality services to 95 percent of Ventura County's residents since 1918. The Ventura County Special Districts Association (VCSDA) represents the more than 30 independently governed special districts in Ventura County by informing its public of how these agencies can more effectively and efficiently deliver public sector services.
VCSDA's purpose is to promote the efficient, economical and responsive manner in which public services are provided by the Independent Special Districts of Ventura County.
VCSDA GOALS ARE TO:
- Provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among Independent Special Districts;
- Inform and interpret for the public, governmental agencies and other groups about the purpose, activities and accomplishments of Independent Special Districts;
- Provide a focal point for the cooperation and coordination of Independent Special District projects with cities, the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), the Ventura County Board of Supervisors and other agencies;
- Foster legislation which will facilitate the delivery of services to Independent Special District constituents.
