Your readers concerned about redistricting will have this HEARING as the final opportunity to present their preferences and gain the attention of the supervisors. Only two proposals are planned to receive supervisors’ discussions, Proposal Plan 15 keeps districts nearly the same as current with adjustments for population, and Proposal Plan 16 creates districts with commonality of interests, transportation/economic corridors, and community support. It is intended that adjusted versions of one of these two plans will be the supervisors’ selection.
