What's it take to form a new county?

by thinking about representation, Menlo Park: other,

As Palo Alto deals with its obvious lack of representation from south Santa Clara County representatives, and Menlo Park and neighboring cities have the same issues with north San Mateo County officials who seem to care less about them, why wouldn't Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, East Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Woodside (and Los Altos for that matter) pull together and form a new county?
I know it would cause all sorts of panic in Santa Clara and San Mateo, but let's be honest, they only care about our property taxes.
What does it take? Anyone know? And I know there have been some failed attempts in the past, but we are talking about some seriously strong economies in this group.
