The second of two infomational meetings will be held to discuss proposed maps and help you understand the process and criteria used to draw the districts at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28 at Oak Grove Elementary School. Doug Johnson of National Demographic Corporation will lead the meeting discussion. NDC has a unique understanding of the Tulare County area because the firm worked with the Visalia Unified School District, and the Tulare District Hospital, when those agencies developed their district boundaries.
Citizens have responded to the city’s request for their suggested district boundary maps. As of today, a dozen maps have been submitted and are on display on the city’s website, www.ci.visalia.ca.us, for citizens to review. All maps will be on display at each meeting for citizens to view and provide comment.
The City Council’s goal is to adopt the district boundaries by June 2015 to ensure there is ample time for the citizens and any potential City Council candidates to understand the districts prior to the election cycle in 2016.
To learn more about the meetings or the district election process, contact Community Relations Manager Nancy Loliva at 713-4535 or go to www.visalia.city.
