On August 11, 2016, Marin LAFCO formally adopted on comprehensive policy update involving Marin LAFCO’s administrative, regulatory, and planning functions.  The resulting “Policy Handbook” serves as Marin LAFCO’s principal document in outlining standards, goals, strategies, and requirements in uniformly fulfilling its prescribed duties consistent with the collective preferences of the membership to promote and produce orderly local government responsive to local conditions. Nonetheless, Marin LAFCO reserves discretion in administering the Policy Handbook to remain responsive to unique and changing circumstances.
