How to use this map:

This map, updated weekly, shows the evolving development of Community Choice in California. The unique aspect of this map is that it includes information for all 58 counties and all 482 incorporated cities in the state. Each color represents one of six levels of program development, in addition to those that are ineligible because they are served by a municipal public utility or Irrigation District.

To learn about the progress of Community Choice, click on any county and its respective cities. Please note that most counties have a mixed composition of program development among their cities. We assign each county the color that represents the level corresponding to most of the county. Click on the cities for more detail.

Information for this map comes from a variety of sources. We strive to keep the map as current and accurate as possible, though the process involves some subjectivity and there may be delays in updating the data. We welcome your feedback.
