Welcome to the website of the La Conchita Community Organization, a voluntary, IRC Section 501 (c) (3), group, dedicated to the improvement of the La Conchita area.

Originally a spur of the Southern Pacific Railroad in the 1880s and called Punta Gorda, the present village was laid out as a beach resort in 1924 and re-named La Conchita or “little shell.” Although the original scheme came to nothing, the lots were purchased by workers toiling in the nearby farms and oil fields, creating a multi-cultural mix, represented by the astounding diversity of La Conchita’s residents today.

The La Conchita Community Organization, or LCCO, coordinates resident projects, performs community maintenance, and interfaces with government officials. We are pleased to post the minutes resulting from the bi-monthly meetings of the LCCO Board—meetings which are open to community residents, and are held the first Monday evening of every other month.
