SDCTA 101 on Municipal Disincorporation
Most of the cities in the County of San Diego were incorporated prior to 1960. Due to many factors (e.g. declining revenues, increasing expenditures, limited growth opportunities, etc.), some cities in the County of San Diego (County) have discussed the idea of disincorporating. See Table 1 for an overview of the cities within the County and their respective dates of incorporation. Disincorporation, by definition, is the dissolution of a city and its respective powers.
