A redistricting map for the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FHDA) that was approved by the District’s Board of Trustees last month is scheduled for adoption next week. The FHDA Board of Trustees is also set to adopt the sequencing of elections to determine which two trustee areas should hold elections in 2022.
The FHDA is transitioning from at-large elections to a model divided geographically into five trustee areas, where residents vote solely for the trustee who represents the area in which they reside. In September, the District began hosting public hearings to gather community input on the creation of a new election map. On Jan. 10, the Board of Trustees voted 4-1 to move Draft Map A forward for possible adoption at the upcoming meeting on Feb. 14. Draft Map A can be viewed here.
The Board is encouraging input on Draft Map A and the sequencing of elections from members of the community ahead of Monday’s public hearing. Community members can express concerns, hopes, and needs by taking the community interest survey, submitting a draft map, or sending comments by email to TrusteeAreas@fhda.edu.
Information on how to participate in the Feb. 14 public hearing will be posted Thursday, Feb. 10 at https://go.boarddocs.com/ca/fhda/Board.nsf/Public. To get caught up on past meetings you can view recordings here.
