Service Area Plan Guidelines

Service Area Plans (SAPs), also known as Municipal Service Reviews (MSRs), are comprehensive studies designed to better inform LAFCOs, local agencies, and the community about the capacity of services, level of service, efficiency of services and provide for coordination and opportunities between providers. SAPs are required to be updated by all cities and special districts in Imperial County every 5 years. 

The SAP Guidelines found below provide detailed instructions and requirements to the necessary information within a SAP document. Also found below is the SAP Submittal Summary which summarizes basic information within the SAP document. The Submittal Summary is required upon submittal of the SAP.
