CITY OF MERCED INDEPENDENT DISTRICTING ADVISORY COMMITTEE COMMUNITY MEETINGS

The Independent Districting Advisory Committee is asking for community input from residents and invite you to take part in the process of creating six Council voting districts. The first of three first-round community meetings was held May 5th at Tenaya School. The next meetings are:

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Senior Community Center 755 15th Street

Saturday, May 30, 2015 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Rivera Middle School 945 Buena Vista Drive

Come and share with the Committee what you consider to be your "community." Learn how to make and send in your own district map. The meetings will cover the same information, so come to the one most convenient for you. There will be another round of meetings, to hear the public's comments on proposed draft maps, which are planned for July 2015.
