Mission Statement

The mission of McKinleyville Community Services District is to:

"Provide safe and reliable water, wastewater, lighting, open space, parks and recreation, and library services in an environmentally and fiscally responsible manner."

Additional Information About Our Department

McKinleyville Community Services District was created on April 7, 1970 when McKinleyville's voters voted 589 "yes" votes against 151 "no" votes to form the District. Initially, the District had authority to serve water and treat sewer wastes. In 1972, the voters added street lighting powers, in 1985 the voters added recreational powers and in 1995 the voters authorized construction of the McKinleyville Library.

The District boundary encompasses 12,140 acres ranging from North Bank Road on the south to Patrick’s Creek on the north. The District is an independent, special district governed by a five member Board of Directors elected by McKinleyville's voters. The Directors meet monthly on the first Wednesday of each month to set policy, consider projects and resolve disputes. The Board's directives are implemented by the District's 23 full-time and 42 part-time employees.  McKinleyville is the third largest community in Humboldt County with a population of 15,998. We currently have over 5,300 active water services and 4,470 active sewer connections.
