According to a June 2006 consultant’s report to the Rossmoor Planning Committee, the most cost effective solution for Rossmoor would be to be annexed by the city of Seal Beach. [1]

Although it is not part of the city of Los Alamitos, it is served under the Los Alamitos “sphere of influence” and was proposed to be annexed to the city by 2007 after the Local Agency Formation Commission reviews the proposal. [2]

Another proposal would combine Rossmoor with adjacent Seal Beach and Los Alamitos to form one city. [3]

Rossmoor is served by the Rossmoor/Los Alamitos Area Sewer District. The mainly residential area is also served by the Rossmoor Community Services District, which serves the community as an independent functionary would, and provides limited services like landscape upkeep, city and road maintenance, and performing some general day-to-day upkeep of the community. However, the council lacks any central government, authority to the California State Government, and cannot make decisions about the future of the community, which is all delegated to the County of Orange’s Unincorporated Islands Program.  Rossmoor Highlands CA Homes for Sale

At the May 22, 2008 meeting, OC LAFCO recommended that the Rossmoor Incorporation Plan go to a vote of the community. A vote by residents on the issue of incorporation was held on November 4, 2008. The proposition for cityhood was resoundingly defeated by a vote of 72% to 28% indicating that the majority of residents desire not be incorporated as a city. Residents also voted down three separate utility tax proposals by a wide margin.  Rossmoor Highlands CA Homes for Sale
