Second redistricting meeting tonight, Oct. 5

Plumas County’s first redistricting workshop occurred on Sept. 18 and is available online to view. It explains the legal process for redistricting, wherein every 10 years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed.

State law requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings, workshops and conducting public outreach. Plumas County is working to engage residents in the process through community-based outreach and online at https://www.plumascounty.us/2781/Redistricting-2021.

The second hearing for the redistricting process will be a training to introduce the mapping tool, and to begin gathering public comments.  This hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 5,  from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Board of Supervisors’ Chambers, located at 520 Main St., Room 308, Quincy, CA, 95971. The meeting will also be available via zoom.
