Macias, Reynaldo F.; And Others
The aim of this study was to collect data and printed materials on and from unincorporated East Los Angeles and contiguous, predominantly Chicano neighborhoods to help determine the feasibility and/or desirability of incorporation of any or all of East Los Angeles. Information is given on: (1) incorporation procedures; (2) the past incorporation attempts of 1961 and 1963-65; and (3) the community itself. The scope was limited to the unincorporated East Los Angeles area and to data either required for incorporation or necessary in evaluating existing agencies and services. The study was conducted from June through September 1970. Data collection was done by interviews with persons involved in the past attempts, the use of the 1960 United States Census, and the 1965 Special Census on the South and East Los Angeles area. Information given pertains to the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) in Los Angeles; the composition, powers and jurisdiction, and services of LAFCO; population; housing characteristics; land use; tax structure; tax and property value; education; governmental and political jurisdictions within the area; health needs; voter registration; and area barrios.
