This allows the user to search the County mapped data bases. Most LAFCO-related data is accessed by:
—accepting the disclaimer,
—opening the left menu by clicking on the white arrow,
—scrolling down to “Special Districts” for district information or “Jurisdictional, Elections, Census” for city information,
—checking the type of name of district, &
—zooming into the subject property.

The maps and tabular data used on this web site have been compiled from many different sources: therefore, the accuracy of the individual map layers varies significantly, and some layers do not align exactly with others. In the urban areas, the parcel maps are generally accurate within five to ten feet of their true geographic coordinates, but in the rural areas, the maps may be accurate to only within three hundred feet. Due to the limitations of the mapped information, field studies and information from site inspections may be used to supplement or replace mapped information. With these limitations, the County of Santa Cruz and LAFCO disclaim any responsibility for the accuracy or correctness of the maps and data. This disclaimer is exclusive and in lieu of any warranties, fitness for particular purpose, and/or any other type of warranty, whether expressed or implied.
