The Allan Hancock College Joint Community College District Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on Jan.11 at 6 p.m. to discuss redistricting for the trustee area boundaries.
Redistricting is the process of reviewing and redrawing district trustee area lines every 10 years, based on the United States census data, as required by California State Education Code Section 5019.5. At a September 2021 meeting of the board of trustees, Redistricting Insights representative Matt Rexroad provided a brief overview of the redistricting process and a status report of the district’s existing trustee areas.
The public has previously been provided opportunities for input at public meetings held during the September, October, and December 2021 board meetings. Based on input from the board over the course of the fall semester, staff and the redistricting consultants developed 12 different maps, with version 12 constituting the board’s stated final preferred map.
As part of the board’s Jan. 11 regular meeting, the district will hold a final public hearing to provide an additional opportunity for public comment regarding the redistricting of the trustee area boundaries.
The meeting will be held in the boardroom at Hancock’s Santa Maria campus, with limited attendance to observe social distancing guidelines. Members of the public are invited to attend virtually via Zoom. The Zoom link for the hearing will be available via the meeting agenda at www.hancockcollege.edu/board/book or by emailing email@example.com.
To provide a public comment during the meeting, please register to do so by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments will be accepted until the end of the meeting’s public comment section. Public comment is limited to three minutes per speaker.
