The League of California Cities was developed to be a leading advocate for the interests of the cities of California. The City of Santa Clarita has been a dues-paying member of the organization since shortly after incorporation in 1987.
The League of California Cities is an association of California city officials who work together to enhance their knowledge and skills, exchange information, and combine resources so that they may influence policy decisions that affect cities.
