The City of Grover Beach is launching its first City Council districting process, with the first of four public hearings scheduled to take place on Monday, June 28, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. during the regular City Council Meeting streamed live via SLO-SPAN.
Local governments use data from the Census to draw and redraw their voting district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Members of the Grover Beach community are encouraged to participate in the districting process to ensure district lines respect neighborhoods, history and geographical elements.
To help share information about districting, collect public feedback and eventually gather draft maps, the City of Grover Beach has launched a dedicated districting webpage: groverbeach.org/districting.
The webpage includes background information on the districting process, a tentative schedule of participation opportunities, frequently asked questions, and eventually resources for drafting maps and sharing feedback on previously drawn maps. The City is currently awaiting finalized Census data from the State of California, which is projected to be available in September 2021. Mapping tools are anticipated to be available this summer, and the City will update the webpage accordingly.
As the districting process moves forward, the City will continue to update the webpage to include additional details on future public hearings, mapping opportunities, FAQs, and more. To sign up for updates and information about the districting process and future public meetings, please visit groverbeach.org/districting to subscribe to the City’s email list or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
