In order to comply with the California Voter Rights Act, the City of Kingsburg has begun the process of moving to district-based elections. As such, the City has hired a professional demographer (National Demographers Company) to assist with the process. The demographer has created draft map(s) with five districts that will be presented during the regular April 18 meeting. Citizens will also be able to give input at meetings on May 2 and May 16, 2018.
Before the Public Hearing on April 18, 2018, the City boundary map and citizen districting kit will be updated to reflect newly annexed territory and the addition of de minimus population to the City. Members of the Public wishing to update submitted maps may do so on or before April 23, 2018. The deadline for submission of new maps is also April 23, 2018.
