The Moonstone Cove CSD (officially Cambria CSD) was formed originally in 1966 and expanded in 1976 following a reorganization that dissolved Cambria County Water District (formed in 1959), Cambria Fire Protection District (originally formed as the Hope Volunteer Fire formed in 1877 and changed to Cambria Fire in 1933), Cambria Garbage Disposal District (formed in 1959), Cambria Lighting District (formed in 1959) and County Service Area No. 6 (which took over the lighting district in 1967). In 1976, the Cambria Community Services District was formed. This facilitated the expansion of CCSD services to include water, wastewater, fire protection, lighting, refuse, and Parks, Recreation, and Open Space. The CCSD is governed by a five-member board of directors elected by Cambria voters for four-year overlapping terms.

Special Districts
CCSD Municipal Service Review and Sphere of Influence Study

A special district is a very basic form of local government, special to the state of California. There are approximately 2,300 independent special districts in California. When residents or landowners want new services or higher levels of existing services, they can form a special district to pay for and administer them.
