     What is now called Cambria Community Services District was formerly Cambria Water District which was formed in 1967. Cambria Water District provided sewer services to the community. In 1976, 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.


     A special district is a very basic form of local governments, 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.

     The Cambria Community Services District is primarily funded by utility fees augmented by a small amount of property tax revenue. Today, there are three independent special districts in Cambria: The Cambria Community Services District, Cambria Healthcare District, and Cambria Cemetery District.

COVID-19 Safety

Dear Guest, Thank you for your business during these difficult times. In an effort to protect the safety of our guests and staff we have made the following changes. For stays that are longer than one night there will be NO ROOM SERVICE. However, we will offer a towel exchange in which guests can have used towels replaced with fresh towels. In addition, the use of face coverings are required in public areas of the premises such as the lobby and towel room. Lastly we have also updated our sanitation efforts in our rooms as well. We hope to return to normal operations when safe to do so, until then we thank you for patronage in these uncertain times.
