2022 Redistricting Overview
According to California Elections Code section 22000, following each federal decennial census (every 10 years) special districts are required to use the updated census data to adjust the boundaries of their divisions so that “as far as practicable” the divisions are equal in population. Section 22000 provides that as part of the process in adjusting division boundaries, a district may also consider factors such as: topography; geography; cohesiveness, contiguity, integrity, and compactness of territory; and community of interests within the divisions. This year, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.
On February 22, 2022, the District’s Board of Trustees conducted the first of two public hearings on proposed adjustments to the boundaries of divisions within the District in accordance with the California Elections Code. The proposed adjustments are reflected in the maps and related information below. On March 15, 2022, the District will conduct a second public hearing to consider final approval of the proposed boundary adjustments to the District’s divisions. As part of the public hearing, any member of the public may appear before the Board to support, object to, or otherwise comment on the proposed adjustments.February 22, 2022 JDL Mapping Memo to Board of Trustees Resolution No. 815 - Notice of Intent to Adjust Boundaries of District Divisions Notice of Public Hearing - March 15, 2022
