History

Cabazon was incorporated as a city in 1955. In 1972, after years of scandal, political instability, and stalled growth, the citizens of Cabazon voted to disincorporate the city. Cabazon then became the first (and only) community in Riverside County, and in California, to give up cityhood. Interest in re-incorporating the area has been reported in the 2000's. [1]
