Beaumont, CA – The Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District (BCVWD) Board of Directors will hold its third and final public hearing on Thursday, March 24, 2022, to review and adopt voting divisions within the District. Redistricting takes place every 10 years, based on the latest U.S. Census, to confirm roughly equal populations among voting boundaries.
Residents in each division vote for the member who represents them on the Board. The community is encouraged to participate in the process by using the online mapping tool and viewing draft maps at bcvwd.org/redistricting. Customers can attend the public hearing or email firstname.lastname@example.org by March 24 to provide feedback.
BCVWD’s comprehensive redistricting process included creation of initial draft maps that were reviewed by the Board at a public hearing on Feb. 9, 2022. A set of revised maps, incorporating feedback from the Board and public comment, were presented at a second public hearing on March 9, 2022.
The Board will review and potentially adopt new voting boundaries at the public hearing on March 24, 2022, at 6 p.m. The public can attend the meeting in-person or via video or telephone conference, as outlined below:
