The reformation age evolves more or less than ten years involving some prescriptions of development distribution with its peak remains on the determination of Act No. 32 of 2004 on Local Government. The Act brings along fresh wind to the Regency/City to organize the government based on decentralization, by assigning the wide, actual, and responsible authority for the autonomy. Regarding to the distant region from the province capital, the Sesayap, Sesayap Hilir, and Tana Lia Subdistricts in the Bulungan Regency, and Lumbis, Sembakung, and Sebuku Subdistricts in the Nunukan Regency, take initiative to extend its region into “Tana Tidung Regency”. Here, the author uses qualitative research with descriptive type. Research takes place at the Bulungan Regency considering that the Bulungan Regency represents the host and address of the author such that it facilitates the research. The observed subject includes the Presidium Head of Court for the establishment of the Tana Tidung Regency, the Regent of the Bulungan Regency (Host Regency), the Temporary Regent for the Tana Tidung Regency, the Head of Governmental Issue for the Bulungan Regency (Host Regency) and public figures of Tidung Community. Results of research on the extension process of the Tana Tidung Regency indicate that the process goes well despite its pro and contra positions as also occurred in the other extended area. The extension process takes five years to begin in adjusting to public interest to extend its area into new regency called the Tana Tidung Regency. The representatives of this interest include tradition elders such as Prince Ismail and Drs.Hasan Basri (for Sebuku Subdistrict), Prince Kumisi (for Sembakung Subdistrict), Kausaudan (for Lumbis Subdistrict), and H. Nuh (for Sesayap Subdistrict, but also covering Sesayap Hilir and Tana Lia Subdistricts). The public interest develops from the background of the desire of getting the better service, for instance in health, education, and other fields, due to its remote position from the capital of regency. Therefore, it stimulates the establishment of Presidium Team for the Establishment of The Tana Tidung Regency (PPKTT) as the institution to accommodate and to facilitate the access to the establishment of the Tana Tidung Regency. It initiates the struggle to realize public aspiration to establish the Tana Tidung Regency through lobbies for the related officials in the Local Representative Board in Bulungan and Nunukan, the regents of Bulungan and Nunukan Regencies, Local Government of East Kalimantan Province, the Governor of East Kalimantan, and the Minister of Internal Issue. In fact, three subdistricts in Nunukan Regency stand against the extension. Meanwhile, the number of three has been enough to establish new regency. The reason behind this may be that the proposition comes up based on Act No. 22 of 1999 on Local Government. The Act mentions about the requirement of minimally three subdistricts for the establishment of new regency. The Act has been revised into Act No.32 of 2004. The revised regulation confirms that the new regency requires five subdistricts in minimum, and thus the Tana Tidung Regency proposition still remains safe. Unstoppable support enters into the government of East Kalimantan Province. At last, on July 17 of 2007, the Second Commission of Indonesian Local Representative Board verifies the Act No. 34 of 2007 on the establishment of the Tana Tidung Regency, and it finalizes the extension process of the Tana Tidung Regency. Considering these results, it may be concluded that the extension into the Tana Tidung Regency represents the public aspiration from Sesayap, Sesayap Hilir, and Tana Lia Subdistricts in the Bulungan Regency, throughout Sembakung, Sebuku and Lumbis Subdistricts in the Nunukan Regency, in order to gain better development in the public service, education, health and other fields due to its remote position from the regency capital and to the inefficient governmental service to the public. Amid the extension process for the Tana Tidung Regency, three subdistricts in the Nunukan Regency refuse to join. Taking account these conclusions, research gives some recommendations that: 1. The extension into autonomous area of the Tana Tidung Regency seems important to be followed by preparing the supporting structures such as governmental, economic, social, human resource and financial facilitates, and other infrastructures demanded by a newly autonomous area. 2. The improvement of upland facility and infrastructure should be important to afford recently inaccessible area. The expansion of transportation infrastructure must be considered because of many isolated places with its yet unexploited potential.
