Unincorporated Communities of Los Angeles County

Within L.A. County are 88 “incorporated” cities, which means they have their own local government (usually city council). But there are also areas within the county that are not part of any official city. These locations are known as unincorporated areas and are governed by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, which is equivalent to a city council. The local laws for these areas are found in the L.A. County Municipal Code.

Here’s a list of the major areas (there are many very small “islands” of land that are unincorporated; we are leaving these out for simplicity). See a very helpful map at LA Almanac and also at LACounty.gov.
