Join the Independent Redistricting Commission for an in-person meeting at the Belle Haven Library, 410 Ivy Drive Saturday, December 11 at noon. Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. State law requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and doing public outreach. Menlo Park is asking for your help and input.

The primary goal when developing election districts is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history and geographical elements. Join us for our upcoming Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) meeting where the demographer, GEOinovo, will be showing the public the mapping tool.
