Description: Complete accounting of all incorporated cities, including the boundary and name of each individual city. Primary use for CAL FIRE is for identifying incorporated areas, which are not eligible for State Responsibility Area (SRA) designation. Secondary uses are for cartographic purposes, e.g. adding city names and city limits to maps, and for creating contact lists for which cities fall within a certain designation. For CAL FIRE, this was especially relevant for notification of cities with Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones.For this version (16_1), in addition to capturing annexations, we adusted city boundaries where appropriate to match updated county parcel data. These adjustments were typically done in areas where cities are adjacent to SRA, the process did not cover all city boundaries.
Definition Expression: N/A
