Sphere Of Influence

Residents Association of Greater Lake Mathews


Sphere of Influence: a territorial area within which the political influence or the interests of one city are held to be more or less paramount.

This is the specific city's desired future land acquisition. City's may wish to annex the specific areas to bring in more revenue many ways including:
  • building new infrastructure
  • charging city service fees
  • new ordinances
  • licensing
  • loss of county services
  • and more...

The Residents Association of Greater Lake Mathews also known as RAGLM, has an established Community Of Interest filed and accepted by Riverside County.

The Sphere of Influence should be with the COI itself yet currently has not been pursued fully.

Currently we only provide maps for parts of the Greater Lake Mathews Community. Please check back frequently for more Sphere of Influence Maps.

Q: What happens if we are annexed into the Sphere Of Influence area?

Stay Unincorporated (as we currently are):
If we are left unincorporated as we are now, we will continue to be governed by the County rules and regulations. We will continue to get County Fire support.

Become Annexed by Riverside:
We would be governed by the rules and regulations of the City of Riverside. Our tax base would be governed by the City of Riverside as well as all of our services. This would include paying to buy existing infrastructure as the City would need to buy the infrastructure to create city services. Higher taxes and fees on these services due to the City being the new retail provider. Our voting voice in this new city would be about 3% for our total rural area.

Create our own City of Lake Mathews:
We would be able to create the laws and set the development standards. Our tax base would be governed by locally elected officials. The new City would also need to buy the infrastructure to create city services. Our voting voice in this new city would be much closer to 100% for our total rural area.
