The Fieldbrook Community Services District was formed in 1962 pursuant to the provisions of Community Services District Law, Title 6, Division 2 of the Government Code, as amended, to provide water and fire protection services to residents living in the Fieldbrook and Glendale areas. In 1983, the Fieldbrook Community Services District approved Ordinance 83-1 which established zones inside the district within which certain services would be provided (fire and water, water and sewer, water only). The District name was later changed to the Fieldbrook-Glendale Community Services District (hereafter Fieldbrook-Glendale CSD or District). Based on available LAFCo records, the Fieldbrook-Glendale CSD does not have an adopted SOI beyond its current boundaries.
The District boundary as of April 2015 consists of approximately 6,982 acres or 10.9 square miles. The District is located almost entirely north of the Mad River, east of the community of McKinleyville and west of the City of Blue Lake. The District does not have a Sphere of Influence (SOI) beyond its district boundary. Major developments within the District include the Fieldbrook area which contains the Fieldbrook Elementary School, the Fieldbrook General Store, and the Fieldbrook Winery. The Glendale area is also within the District boundaries, and includes the E&O Bowl, Murphy’s Market, and various heavy commercial businesses. Figure 1 (on the previous page) illustrates the districts boundary, as well as portions of the adjacent McKinleyville Community Service District, Arcata Fire Protection District (FPD), and the Blue Lake FPD. The District provides water and fire protection services to the Fieldbrook area and water and wastewater services to the Glendale area. The Arcata FPD boundary overlaps the Fieldbrook-Glendale CSD district boundary at the southwestern edge of the district and provides fire protection services to the western portion of the Glendale area. The Blue Lake FPD boundary overlaps the Fieldbrook-Glendale CSD district boundary at the southeastern portion of the district and provides fire protection services to the remainder of the Glendale area
