LBCCD Invites Public to Redistricting Community Forum
The community feedback is requested as LBCCD reviews district lines
The Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) Board of Trustees invites the public within its service area of Avalon, Lakewood, Long Beach and Signal Hill to attend a redistricting virtual community forum on Thurs., Dec. 9, 2021, at 5:30 p.m-7 p.m.
The link to join the virtual community forum can be found at www.lbcc.edu/pod/lbccd-board-redistricting. Long Beach City College will be providing an overview of the redistricting process and sharing and discussing draft maps. Public input is encouraged and welcome.
The LBCCD Board of Trustees is currently engaged in the redistricting process following the federal Census of 2020. The District must review and, if necessary, adjust LBCCD Trustee areas to reflect population changes during the previous decade and ensure an equal distribution of the population in each area. The community’s involvement is a vital part of the process.
Upcoming important dates for LBCCD’s Redistricting process:
- Dec. 9, 2021 – Virtual Community Forum for community members from Avalon, Lakewood, Long Beach, and Signal Hill to discuss redistricting at 5:30 p.m.
- Jan. 26, 2022 – Board of Trustees scheduled to vote on final maps
The District’s recommendation must be submitted before March 1, 2022, in order to prepare for the Nov. 8, 2022, general election, at which time candidates for LBCCD Trustee areas 1, 3, and 5 are scheduled to be on the ballot.
