ARROYO GRANDE, CALIFORNIA – The City of Arroyo Grande is holding its second of at least four public districting hearings on Tuesday, August 10th at 6:00 PM during the City Council’s regular meeting. The public will be able to participate in this meeting in-person or online. Additionally, the meeting will be broadcast live on Arroyo Grande Cable Channel 20 and streamed online.
At this hearing, National Demographics Corporation will provide another presentation on the districting process and introduce DistrictR, one of the mapping tools that residents can use to draw maps for Council consideration. The City Council will continue their discussion on where district boundaries should be drawn and seek resident feedback on communities of interest and neighborhoods. Identifying these areas will help the City Council draw district lines that best represent the City’s communities.
The City invites members of the Arroyo Grande community to participate in the districting process to help ensure district lines respect neighborhoods, communities of interest, history and geographical elements.
To encourage more participation in the districting process and provide more guidance on how to use mapping tools, such as DistrictR, the City is planning to host two community workshops, one in September and one in October. Dates and more information about these workshops will be posted on the City’s districting webpage at www.arroyogrande.org/districtelections in the coming weeks.
