District of Distinction

The District of Distinction recognition is awarded by the Special District Leadership Foundation to special districts that show their commitment to good governance, transparency, prudent fiscal policies and sound operating practices.  The Vista Irrigation District originally obtained its accreditation in 2009 and received its most recent reaccreditation in September 2017.

In addition to the District of Distinction award, the District also received the Transparency Certificate of Excellence, in recognition of its efforts to promote transparency in operations and governance to the public.  The District received its first certificate of excellence in 2013.
