The Board of Supervisors considered another Redistricting Proposal at the continued Public Hearing held August 2. “Proposal I” is the result of some fine tuning applied to Proposal H after the June 21 Public Hearing. At that time board members were generally satisfied with the boundaries set forth in Proposal H. Staff was asked to verify data and fine tune boundary changes addressing follow-up issues or concerns.
Following the June Hearing, District V Supervisor, Denise Carter suggested some improvements to her proposed district boundaries and met with staff to draft the revisions. Based on her input the line was adjusted to move the Crommer Tract on the north side of East Clay St. from District II into District 5.
Additionally, after a closer review In District III, the southern boundary was brought into line with the Williams city limits. To balance the population, two residential blocks in the Northview subdivision were placed back into District 4. The section along Belle Drive is adjacent to Nicolaus Estates which is already in District 4 resulting in a contiguous boundary flow and cohesive community of interest.
The Board received positive feedback on the revisions from public members in attendance. Chairman Mark Marshall continued further consideration to August 30 to allow adequate time to receive public comment. The Board’s redistricting project is continuing on schedule and will likely be finalized long before the October 31 statutory deadline.
