The Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency is reviewing polling station boundaries as required by state law. The final virtual public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15, at 6:30 p.m. և The public is invited to attend. Community contribution is invited.
The hearings will be shared with a proposed map of the department’s boundaries in the Santa Clarita Valley և will provide an opportunity for public opinion before the final vote on the issue by the agency’s board of directors.
The 2020 census data show that the current breakdown boundaries still lead to an almost perfectly balanced distribution of the population by less than 1% of one in three. Even with the expected growth in the middle of the 2025 decade, the existing divisions are projected to be close to the population balance. The proposed map includes updates based on two very small end connections in the service area.
The redistribution process must maintain connections within communities, take into account geography և topography, such as natural-man-made boundaries, as well as the cohesion and integrity of the area և reflect future planned growth. The process should not create divisions for or against incumbent political presidents, candidates, or political parties.
The information was discussed at an extraordinary meeting on October 27, 2021, and at a public hearing on January 25, 2022.
The agenda for participating in the meeting can be found at the Zoom link here Redistribution meeting.

What is redistribution?
Redistribution is the process of adjusting the boundaries of polling stations for city, county, school councils and water agencies. Local authorities should redistribute subsequent population movements based on federal census data every ten years to ensure that communities have equal access to political representation. This process can be used to ensure that each elected council member represents approximately the same number of voters to determine which districts and communities are subdivided into subdivisions to elect representatives.
SCV Water is a regional full-service water agency based in SCV, providing water to approximately 75,000 business and residential customers. It was formed on January 1, 2018, when local water suppliers merged into one integrated, regional water supplier. More information can be found here SCV water agency.
