Redistricting Hearings
(Santa Ana) - The Board of Supervisors has scheduled three public hearings regarding redistricting. The Board will review redistricting proposals at two hearings, then adopt an ordinance reflecting the new supervisorial boundaries at the third hearing. All three hearings are open to the public. The first is at 9:30 a.m., June 26 in the Board hearing room, Hall of Administration, 10 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana.

The Board will select new district lines and a County Surveyor will prepare an ordinance based on those lines at the second hearing, 2 p.m., July 17.

The adoption of a redistricting ordinance will take place August 21 at the third hearing. After it is adopted, the public has 30 days to challenge the ordinance.

The Board established a redistricting committee in October 2000 to guide the redistricting process and develop recommendations utilizing the 2000 Census data. The current districts were established in 1991 using 1990 Census data. The committee is composed of representatives from each Supervisor's office.

Committee members include Chairman James Campbell, First District; Vice Chairman George Cardenas, Third District; Nina Hull, Second District; Dean Olsen, Fourth District; and Holly Veale, Fifth District.
